GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. The April 15th tax deadline has come and gone, and if you were unable or unwilling to file you may now be facing the consequences.
Concerned filers rushed to tax offices all over the Grand Valley on Tuesday to make sure their tax returns were filed and mailed on time.
Some preparers expected to see as many as 50 people come through their offices, and now they're expecting to see many more to file their extensions.
"The best thing I could say is, if you do owe money, don't ignore it, it doesn not go away, but if you don't owe money don't feel that you have to come in today," says Michelle Smith of Liberty Tax.
If you are receiving money back, you actually have three years to file your taxes.
If you applied for an extension, your deadline to file taxes is October 15th of this year.
