Tax documents for 2011 will soon start arriving in the mail, and it is never too soon to start getting organized to ensure a maximum refund with minimal difficulties. 
Jennifer Jenkins, Internal Revenue Service media relations for Ohio and Western Pa., had some basic tips to offer taxpayers. 
“The first thing most people wonder is what's the deadline to file, and this year the deadline is Tuesday, April 17,” Jenkins said. 
The deadline has been extended due to April 15 falling on a weekend and Monday designated as Emancipation Day in the District of Columbia, a holiday unique to that city that celebrates President Lincoln's signing of the proclamation that freed slaves in D.C.
