If you haven't filed your taxes yet, you have time but experts do encourage you to take care of your return now versus at the last minute.
You have until the 15th of April to submit your paperwork to the Internal Revenue Service. That deadline also applies to your Minnesota return as well.
Tax preparers say filing early allows you more time to budget your finances if you do in fact have to pay Uncle Sam.
"The earlier the better, because then you're going to know what you have, whether or not you're going to owe," said Alex Hanel of H&R Block.
Tax experts want to remind you if you're filing for an extension, that extension entails more time to file, not to pay.
