Tax-filing deadline approaches, have you filed yet?

BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - Time is running out for those who have yet to file their taxes, but if you do file late, you may not face a penalty.

Tuesday, April 15th is the deadline to submit your tax return. But people who expect to get refunds from the government will not face fines for filing late.

Even though this policy has always been in place, many people are still not aware of it.

The IRS is anxious to collect from people who owe, but are not as concerned with issuing unclaimed refunds.
