Sandra King leaves Remax, starts new real estate business
After 10 years of working as a real estate agent in Craig, most recently at Remax, Sandra King decided start her own real estate office.
“It was just time to do my own thing… it was time to open my own office,” King said.
Her new business is called King Homes and Land Realty LLC and is located at 504 W. Victory Way in a 300 square foot office that she recently remodeled.
“All my clients came with me, which they had a choice to go to Remax or go somewhere else or stay with me,” she said. “I felt very good that they all wanted to stay with me.”
Tax day is Wednesday, filing extensions is an option
On Saturday, the Internal Revenue Service issued a statement reminding taxpayers that if they can’t file returns by April 15 or pay taxes on time, they can ask for an extension or request payment options at IRS.gov.
The IRS reported that most taxpayers have already filed their 2014 returns and that as of April 3, the IRS had already received just over 99 million returns and issued more than 77 million refunds averaging over $2,800.
For those who have yet to file, the IRS said don’t panic. Tax-filing extensions are available to taxpayers who need more time to finish their returns. Remember, this is an extension of time to file; not an extension of time to pay. However, taxpayers who are having trouble paying what they owe may qualify for payment plans and other relief.
Either way, taxpayers will avoid stiff penalties if they file either a regular income tax return or a request for a tax-filing extension by this year’s April 15 deadline.
More Time to File
People who haven’t finished filling out their return can get an automatic six-month extension. The fastest and easiest way to get the extra time is through the Free File link on IRS.gov.
By properly filing this form, a taxpayer will avoid the late-filing penalty, normally five percent per month based on the unpaid balance that applies to returns filed after the deadline. In addition, any payment made with an extension request will reduce or eliminate interest and late-payment penalties that apply to payments made after
The interest rate is currently three percent per year, compounded daily, and the late-payment penalty is normally 0.5 percent per month.
Besides Free File, taxpayers can choose to request an extension through a paid tax preparer, using tax-preparation software or by filing a paper Form 4868, available on IRS.gov.
