As one of the states that levees an income tax, New York requires its citizens to file on the same dates as they file Federal taxes. Like many other states and the IRS, they recommend doing New York income taxes online this year. If you've never done your taxes on the Internet, you'll find that it will be a much more pleasant experience than doing your taxes on paper has ever been.

There are many reasons for this wonderful feeling you'll get while you're doing it and when you're done. For example, much of the grunt work is done for you by the program. Your basic responsibility is to gather your tax documents, including W2s, bank interest earned statements, mortgage interest paid statements, and documentation for your deductions, such as charitable donations.
