The income tax filing deadline has come and gone and most Missourians took care of business prior to the April 17th deadline, which was almost two weeks ago. But some of us – for one reason or another – failed to file.

Michael Devine with the Internal Revenue Service in St. Louis says the requirement to file doesn’t go away just because the deadline was missed – and taxpayers who failed to file must do so as soon as possible.

Devine points out anyone who filed for an extension has bought some time, but those who didn’t file anything are required to get moving. Devine says those who owe money will have to pay interest and late fees, but those receiving money get a break and will not be charged for filing late.
