DURHAM, N.C. - April 17, 2017 - PRLog -- Those struggling to file their federal and state income taxes on time may request an extension through this yearʼs deadline on April 18.

The Benefit Bank® of North Carolina (TBB™-NC) offers free, easy-to-use online tax assistance at There are no additional fees or charges of any kind. TBB-NC is managed by MDC, a Durham-based nonprofit organization dedicated to eliminating barriers that separate people and communities from opportunity.

"Many wait to file right at the tax deadline and extensions must also be filed by April 18," says MDC Senior Program Director, Ralph Gildehaus. Taxpayers can visit and and follow the steps to file an automatic six-month extension to complete their taxes by October 18. "Remember, if you owe money, you still need to pay the estimated taxes to avoid tax penalties and interest."

"Most volunteer sites shut down after April 18," Gildehaus says. "It can be difficult to obtain free tax assistance after that date, but you can use ( until your extension ends. You can even use this site to prepare up to three prior years of back taxes."
