2011 taxes were officially due last year, but it’s not too late to file. On PriorTax you can still prepare your 2011 federal and state returns online. Most people find that with the help of PriorTax’s simple application and superlative customer service taking care of late taxes is a lot less stressful than they fear.
Yes, if you are due a 2011 refund you can still claim it.
You can claim a refund for three years after the original due date of a return. That means you have until April 15, 2015 to file your 2011 return and get your refund money. After this date it belongs to the U.S. Treasury.
Many taxpayers assume that just because they’re late they will get hit with tons of penalties and interest. That’s often not the case.
If you are due a refund you won’t be charged any penalties or interest at all. And late filers are actually more likely than normal filers to get a refund.
If you do owe money, you may be charged a failure-to-file penalty, failure-to-pay penalty, and/or interest. All of these charges get larger every day that your return is late and your tax liability goes unpaid, so it makes sense to file as soon as possible. Don’t worry if you can’t pay the full amount all at once. The IRS is usually pretty generous at working out affordable installment plans.
You can prepare your 2011 taxes online right here on PriorTax. Just enter information into PriorTax’s application and it will do the rest. The powerful algorithm is guaranteed to get you the largest 2011 refund possible.
At the end of the process, PriorTax will provide you with your completed 2011 return. Unfortunately the IRS does not allow us to e-file prior year returns, so you will have to paper file - print your return out, sign it, and mail it to the IRS. This means you can expect your refund in about six to eight weeks.
Don’t let the IRS keep your money for one more minute. Create an account now to get started on your 2011 return.
