CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (CBS19 NEWS) -- Monday is the deadline to file federal income taxes.
The Tax Ladies of Charlottesville have been hard at work since the calendar turned to 2019. They have seen a rush as tax season comes to a close.
One tax preparer says you shouldn't have waited until the last minute. If you did, there's a reason you should file early during next tax season.
"The biggest thing about people waiting until the last minute, is usually the people that wait owe money," said Libby Edwards-Allbaugh, co-owner of The Tax Ladies. "What happens then, is you've already gone through a quarter of a year, so any adjustments that need to be made, so that you don't owe in future years."
"Filing early, allows us to make adjustments to people, so that next year they won't owe," said Edwards-Allbaugh.
