Local Residents Look For Last-Minute Help To File Their Taxes

SACRAMENTO (CBS13) – It’s the deadline many of us dread: tax day. You have until midnight Monday to file, and some doors in downtown Sacramento are staying open late for some last-minute help.

The clock is ticking. We are just hours away from meeting the deadline to file your taxes. If you can’t make tomorrow’s deadline, experts suggest you file an extension request.

According to the IRS, 97 million Americans had already submitted their tax forms by the first of this month.

The average tax refund is around $2,800, which is down about $40 from last year.

One california lawmaker wants to give Californians a break on tax day. On Monday, Assemblywoman Melissa Melendez will introduce a bill to make tax day a sales tax holiday. Californians would not have to pay sales tax on every April 15 starting next year.

Melendez believes the bill could promote consumer spending and stimulate the economy.
