TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTHI) - Tax Day will be here before you know it, but are you ready?
News 10 spoke to Michael Perkins with Larrison's Tax Service. He says business is slow now, but that will all change come April 1st.
Perkins says one big concern this time of year is tax scams.
He says they get several calls daily from customers saying they've been called by the IRS. Perkins says it's important to keep your guard up, because the feds will not contact you like that.
He says, "This is not something the IRS will do. They will never call you. They will never email you, and just hang up. Don't give any of these people any information. They're just trying to scare you and scam you out of money."
Don't forget, April 15th falls on a Sunday this year, and Emancipation Day is on the 16th. That means Tax Day this year is April 17th.
