IRS encourages taxpayers not to wait to file

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- The Internal Revenue Service has reminded taxpayers who owe taxes that it's not necessary to wait until the last minute to file.

The IRS suggests that taxpayers can postpone paying by e-filing now and authorizing a direct-debit payment for the April 17 deadline.

The agency estimates that nearly 690,000 Tennesseans waited last year until April to file, many of them wanting to hold on to their money until the last minute.

E-filing benefits include a lower error rate and faster processing than with paper returns.
