Sigma Tax Pro and the IRS are reminding all taxpayers whose filing extensions runs out this month to double check returns for tax benefits.

Delray Beach, Florida (PRWEB) October 15, 2015

As tax pros across America begin preparing for the coming tax season, the IRS has reminded taxpayers of the upcoming filing extension deadline on October 15th. According to the IRS, around 25% of the 13 million requested extensions have still not been filed. It should be noted that certain members of the military are exempt from this requirement. Jody Dovich at Sigma Tax Pro urges anyone who filed an extension to contact their tax professional to ensure their return is filed by the coming deadline.

The Internal Revenue Service has also detailed some of the potential tax benefits that taxpayers may be able to take advantage of. For low income workers, the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) can be a huge help and the EITC Assistant can show if anyone is eligible. The American Opportunity Tax Credit, claimed via Form 8863, as well as other education tax benefits can also be filed at this time.
