I know, it is two whole months until your taxes are due. But, if you are due a refund, if you file earlier, you get your $$ earlier. $$ earlier are definitely better. My furry counterpart spent the weekend doing his best to create havoc by jumping amongst tax papers. To avoid this fate, try getting the forms online. At http://www.irs.ustreas.gov/formspubs/index.html, you can download pdf tax forms which you can fill in on your computer. Just click on Forms and Instructions, scroll down and choose your form in the box.
For New York forms, go to http://www.tax.state.ny.us/forms/
For other states, go to http://www.taxadmin.org/fta/link/forms.html
