Federal and state taxes are due Wednesday after the deadline was pushed back by three months due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
David Gibbs, a partner with Norwalk accounting firm R.L. DePanfilis and Company, says the pandemic has created a lot of complications to navigate - from stimulus checks to PPP loans.
He says he has been spending most of his energy these past few weeks reminding regular tax clients that the deadline is coming up.
Gibbs says with everything else that's happened since March, it's no surprise filling out tax returns isn't the first thing on the minds of many.
Any unpaid taxes will start accruing fees and interest on Thursday.
Gibbs says if you have a lot of work left to do, now might be a good time to start thinking about filing with the form 4868 for an extension.
Rep. Jim Himes adds that getting those returns filed on time is especially important for families who are counting on important tax rebates or stimulus checks.
