Most people feel stressed out when they do their taxes, and waiting until the last minute to submit to the IRS makes it worse.
If you haven’t already filed, the deadline of April 18, 2022 is quickly approaching.
Rushing could result in more mistakes being made.
This could include incorrect filing status or misspelling names.

If this is the case, the IRS will let you know by letter.
