We're down to crunch time when it comes to doing your taxes. It's time to get tax information organized fast, and get all those receipts together, all the 1099 and W2 forms, and make sure you're taking all the deductions and credits you can legally claim.
The tax filling deadline is coming up in just over a week – on April 18th, 2011. Most years the deadline comes on the 15th, but for those procrastinators out there, the tax filing deadline has been pushed back to the 18th because of a government holiday on Friday the 15th.
