Tax season officially opens on Wednesday. The IRS will begin processing most tax returns.
They say the best way to file a return is through E-File; that's also the fastest way to get a refund.
The IRS says it expects to process refunds within the normal timeframes. Last year, the average refund was about 21 days or less.
If you made less than $50,000 dollars last year, you can get your taxes done for free at Cal Poly.
The program is part of the Central Coast Tax Coalition, and it aims to help community members and students avoid unnecessary tax fees.
IRS-certified accounting students in their senior year prepare the tax returns and local tax practitioners review them.
They will be on the third floor of the Orfalea College of Business building starting Saturday, February 2nd.
Cal Poly's tax program will run from 10:30 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. on Saturdays through March 16th. You don't need an appointment, but you should bring your Social Security card or Individual Taxpayer Identification Number, 2011 tax returns, and all 2012 tax-related documents.
