Radio Smart Talk for Monday, April 8:
April 15 is one of most recognizable dates on each year's calendar. But unlike the other noteworthy dates of the year, it's not a holiday and in fact is a date that many Americans dread.
Income taxes on the federal, state, and local levels are due next Monday -- April 15.
Most taxpayers have already filed their returns and many have received tax refunds. However, the Internal Revenue Service reports one in five Americans will wait until the last week to file a return.
Often the late filers have waited because they owe the government money. That's not the explanation for everyone though. Let's face it -- there are those who prefer to wait until the last few days or last minute to take on any significant task.
Appearing on Radio Smart Talk will be professionals from the Pennsylvania Institute of Certified Public Accountants to answer your questions about 2012 income taxes. Even if you've already filed, there still are questions to be answered that could save money next year.
Do you have any questions aboiut your income taxes?
We'll also hear from Noorjahan Akbar, a Dickinson College student who's been named the grand prize winner of Glamour's 2013 Top U.S. College Woman program for her work to promote gender equality in Afghanistan. Akbar's led the first march against street harassment in Afghanistan's history, and also helped create an all-women's Internet cafe.
