It's that time of year again, tax time.
With less than three weeks to go, Central Texas Tax Preparer Henry Chase said there are a couple changes you need to know about.
"Currently the 22 is the target day. Some of the forms and schedules may be delayed like the Schedule C, and education credits, you may not be able to file those types of forms at the beginning of tax season," said Chase.
With a growing number of fraudulent activity and people filling bogus tax returns, the IRS is stepping up their security.
"The IRS has a fraud system where they can detect if the fields are wrong on your W2 and it could cause you a mayor delay in getting your money," said Chase.
Another way to speed up the process is make sure you have all the proper tax documents before you go have your taxes done.
Along with your W2, you'll also need your drivers licenses, social security card, and for some places, check stub.
"If they receive Social Security they need to bring that in or unemployment, they need to bring all of their tax information in," said Jackson Hewitt Tax Manager Avelin Gibson-Howell
And don't forget about any dependents you might be claiming.
"Well they usually forget their dependents Social Security numbers," said Howell.
Be weary of scammers who will do your taxes, but are also looking to take advantage of you.
They might not only get your money, but also get you in trouble with the IRS.
"There are people here in the Waco Texas area advertising, bring in your last check stub and get a free estimate. You want to be leery of that type of business," said Chase.
And as always, make sure you keep copies of all your records.
You have until April the 22nd to either file your taxes or file an extension.
Most tax preparers said you should receive your refund check with in seven to 21-days.
The recent fiscal cliff legislation wont affect this year's return, but some people can expect a change next year.
