Tax Week

Today, April 17th, businesses with personal property must file renditions listing that property and its value with the local Appraisal District Office. Failure to render will cause the business owner to be charged a 10% penalty on the tax appraisal the district sets on the personal
property.

An extension of time to file the rendition can be made by requesting, in writing, an extension to May 15th. Tomorrow, April 18th, your 2016 Federal Tax Return is due. You should have received the form in one way or the other. It can be filed online in many cases, IRS Offices offer free help in preparing forms, as do local outreach services, or many libraries or commercial tax preparation offices have the forms available. A local AARP tax filing assistance program for low and middle income, especially senior citizens, is available on Tuesdays from 9am to 1pm at the Lampasas Senior Center. For information, contact Robert McCauley at 556-8367.
