Tax deadline approaching

Posted: Updated:

ALEXANDRIA, La. (KALB News Channel 5) -- The deadline to file your taxes is quickly approaching.

April 15 is the last day to file your taxes without facing a penalty.

At H&R Block in Alexandria, staff say they have seen a steady flow of people coming in last minute to file.

Experts at the tax office say most people still don't understand how to file their taxes or what penalties they'll face if they forget to file.

They expect to be busy right up until the deadline.

"We have two periods," said Patti Kidd, a tax preparer with H&R Block. "The end of January and beginning of February when everyone gets their refunds, it's busy. And, typically toward the last week you have those who put everything off."

H&R Block will be open until midnight on April 15.
