“You can do it online for free by going to our website, or you can go to a volunteer income tax assistance site,” Miller says. “These are organizations within your community, like AARP, that do tax counseling for the elderly.”
Miller says you should be hunting down your important financial information and getting it together and ready. He says one document you’ll need this year is the 1095-A, B or C, which you’ll have received if you’re getting insurance under the Affordable Care Act.
Miller says electronic filing remains the best way for Nebraskans to complete their returns.
“That insures that you’re getting all of the credits and deductions that you have coming to you and it insures that all the math is done correctly,” Miller says. “Generally speaking, it’s a more accurate return.” Plus, he says e-filing will speed up a refund — if you have one coming.
Tax filing season officially opens January 19th and ends this year on April 18th.
