Late season tax Q&A


#Taxday is now fewer than two weeks away.

Here are answers to late-season questions you might have.

Q. Is the deadline to file April 15?

A. This year, the filing deadline for 2015 tax returns is Monday, April 18 because Washington, D.C. will celebrate Emancipation Day on Friday, April 15 (the traditional tax day). 

You still need more time to file? A taxpayer can apply for an automatic extension by sending Form 4868 to the IRS by April 18. The extension gives you until October 17 to file your taxes — but not to pay taxes you owe

Q. How do find out where my refund is?

A. For state of Oklahoma refunds, visit the Taxpayer Access Point or call (405) 521-3160.

For federal refunds, visit

Q. What free tax prep sites are still open?

A. Goodwill Tulsa’s VITA site closes after this Saturday (April 9) for the season. Our partner Tulsa Area United Way sites remain open through April 14. Volunteer tax preparers plan to be at the Tulsa Dream Center on April 18 as well. Call 2-1-1 for times. For self-prep, is available until October 17 for taxpayers earning less than $62,000 in 2015.

Q. Where can I get help understanding my health care options?

A. How much your health care status affected your tax return may have surprised you. Local Healthcare Assistors offer free assistance in finding plans and even enrolling. Use the locator at to find a person or group in your community.

We hope these tips will help you meet that looming #Taxday deadline.
