With just 16 days until tax filing deadline, the Dallas office of the Internal Revenue Service is offering some suggestions to get your taxes done in time.

The IRS requests filers use electronic options for filing and pay as soon as possible.

“Resist the temptation to put off your taxes until the very last minute,” advised Clay Sanford with the IRS in Dallas in a news release. “Rushing to meet the filing deadline may cause you to overlook potential sources of tax savings and will likely increase your risk of making an error.”

Last year, 79 percent of taxpayers — 106 million people — filed online.

“If you owe taxes, you can file immediately and pay later [by the April 17 tax deadline],” the IRS official said. “Using e-file in combination with direct deposit is the fastest way to get your refund.”
