RHINELANDER - Another tax season came to a close Monday.
People who filed returns in the past week or so, belong to a group of close to 15 million who waited until the last minute.
According to the IRS, there are twice as many returns filed this week than those filed just a month ago.
Northland CPA's Ben Hauser says he noticed more people filed early this year compared to years past.
"Generally speaking many people paid less in federal income tax in 2018 then they did historically," said Hauser.
Because of new federal tax laws, Hauser says people should expect to see smaller refunds and those that owe money should expect to pay more.
Hauser's eleventh-hour tax tip is for people filing extensions.
"The extension doesn't give you an extension of time to pay the tax. So if you think you're going to owe, get the payments made today," said Hauser.
People filing a return online have until midnight Monday to complete that process. Local post offices may not stay open late for people filing by mail.
