Tax returns up an average $100 this year The average federal tax refund check will be about $100 higher than last year, in large part due to two changes in the tax law, according to an Internal Revenue Service official. Both the personal exemption and standard deduction were increased for 1997, which benefits most taxpayers who don't itemize on their federal income tax returns, said Domenic LaPonzina, chief of communications for the Delaware-Maryland district office. The personal exemption was raised by $100 to $2,650 for 1997.

FREDERICK, MD. - Rep. Roscoe G. Bartlett said Friday he didn't make any money off several property sales he underreported or failed to report on federally mandated financial disclosure forms. Bartlett had said earlier Friday that he wouldn't release personal income tax returns that would show whether he reported any income from the sales to the Internal Revenue Service. But in an interview with The Associated Press, Bartlett, R-Md., said he lost money on the sales of three properties in question and produced a letter from an accountant supporting that claim.

With no extended hours at the U.S. Post Office in Hagerstown on Monday and a midnight deadline to submit tax forms, people putting off their taxes were lining up on tax day to mail their forms to the IRS that morning and afternoon. Some local residents said that how late they wait to send in their taxes is determined by whether they owe money or expect money back, as well as the amount. Dave Hanna, 66, of Hagerstown, said that Monday was the first time he has not asked for an extension to send in his taxes in a while.

A majority of taxpayers won't be able to file their 2012 federal income tax returns until Jan. 30 to give the Internal Revenue Service time to update forms and instructions that changed as a result of the American Taxpayer Relief Act. Congress passed the American Taxpayer Relief Act at the beginning of January to avert the fiscal cliff. President Barack Obama signed the act into law Jan. 2. In addition to updating forms and instructions, the IRS will have to complete programming and tests on its processing systems before taxpayers will be permitted to file, according to an IRS news release.

“This is to all the Mitt Romney supporters out there who keep taking up for him about not releasing tax returns. This guy probably didn't pay any taxes on millions of dollars of income. They keep saying they're worried about people who don't pay taxes. People who make this kind of money on America's back should pay back into America. I'm sick of people like Romney. All they do is take, take, take. Close down companies, send people's jobs overseas, while they get richer and richer. You people can vote for him all you want.

Anti-Obama vote aside, why vote for Mitt? To the editor: I would like my GOP friends to tell me why they are voting for Mitt Romney. And it's got to be more than the president's so-called failures. The only reason he's failed at anything is because the Congress blocks his every move. He's tried to pass five job bills, highway funding and various women's issues. People must believe this, because Congress is at its worst approval at 10 percent! The only job plan the GOP has is Paul Ryan's plan, which even the nonpartisan budget office has said it is a loser; it would hurt the poor, seniors and the middle class.
