Live from America's Music City, it may be Saturday where you are but it's Friday, all day, every day, all the time with the tax doctor, the tax lady, the doctor of accounting known in these parts of America as Dr.Friday. Right here she is. Hello, Dr. Friday.
Dr. Friday 0:47
Hello, John. What an intro. I always love when you host my show. You're so enthusiastic about my name.
John Haggard 0:53
Well, we've had such a fun time, and boy, do we need you more than ever? What's getting ready to come up here a lot of activity they've extended. You know the tax filing deadline. Is there any breaking news doctor Friday, anything that you're hearing on the inside about what might happen with the tax code for 2021? Does anybody have an idea?
Dr. Friday 1:15
I don't think anyone has a good idea. But I did want to jump in because I know they extended obviously till May 17, the 2020 tax filing. But they did not extend making your estimated tax payments for 2021. It was due on the 15th. So a lot of people did not realize they thought everything got extended. Also business license, franchise excise tax, anything that had a deadline pretty much for April 15. On the state side, many of those did not get extended. So you want to be very careful about thinking that you made things on time. If you haven't filed your first quarterly for example, John, you're self-employed, I'm assuming, like myself, and so we have to pay those. Those were due on the 15th. They did not extend them out to May 17.
John Haggard 2:04
Well, folks, now did you hear that? Because most people or a lot of people would have thought, well, "I've got until May!" Well, no you don't. Based on what Dr. Friday said. You know what's interesting, the government always wants their money on time. They'll take the paperwork a little bit later.
Dr. Friday 2:23
Correct. They want their money early, not late. They definitely, I think it's a great way to explain, anything we do most of the time, from the tax standpoint, we're really just following up with paperwork. They want people to be paying their taxes on a monthly or quarterly basis.
John Haggard 2:37
Early and often. Right?
