Tax Deadline Approaches

With just one day left before the tax deadline, local tax specialists kept extra staff and opened their doors a little while longer today, and companies like H&R Block become a little more popular.

"I expect a lot of customers to be coming through my doors. You know it's crunch time there are a lot of procrastinators so we do see business increase four to five times our normal rate," said regional manager Blake Gonzales.

 "We pretty much staff up all our offices and we extend our hours," said Gonzales.

 He says they keep enough staff on to help all the last minute customers, which is a relief for Donta and Carmel Fairey.

"We actually started the process earlier but didn't realize we needed so many components," Carmel.

 "So we didn't start at the last minute but we're finishing at the last minute," said Dunta.

The couple says the extra wait time is well worth taking their taxes to the experts.

"Don't want to make any mistakes."

 "Yeah, we definitely want to put it in the hands of professionals so we can kind of make sure that everything's in order," said Dunta.

 And they're not the only ones.

Now that he's a married homeowner, Christian Ovalle has a few more forms to fill out.

"I used to do my own when i was single and my taxes were simpler," said Ovalle.

The deadline is fast approaching, and while this H&R Block managed the crowd today

they expect to be even busier  tomorrow.
