Getting Taxes Done Just in Time

It was down to the wire for many people as they scramble to get their taxes done on time.

Susan Elliot with Jackson Hewitt in Zanesville says Wednesday and Thursday have been extremely busy and many people were stressed since they waited until the last minute.

"They waited til the last minute to get their paperwork together, so they stressed us out too," says Elliot.

Elliot says the variety of laws and tax codes often intimidate people. One customer, Daniel Springer, got his taxes finished Thursday, but he says he never let the stress get to him.

"I don’t know, they really don’t stress me, I just don’t have any stress, I just deal with it and do it," says Springer.

If you don’t make the deadline, Elliot suggests you file an extension so you don’t get fined.
