Double Check the Postmark on Your Tax Return

The 12 million taxpayers who sought an extension on filing their taxes last April should consider sending in their returns a few days early if we are to learn from the experience of Mr. and Mrs. Stocker. Back in 2007, the couple waited until October 15th to mail their 2006 federal taxes, 2006 Michigan taxes, and amended 2003 federal taxes. Without obtaining proof that they postmarked their taxes by the deadline, the Stockers found themselves in a dilemma when the IRS thus ruled that the Stockers would not receive their $64,058 refund because of a late postmark.
