The Missouri Department of Revenue has several tips for improving the processing, speed and accuracy of submitted tax returns.
The first suggestion is to file electronically. Electronic forms are available at http://dor.mo.gov/forms/. The forms can be printed out and mailed in.
Another suggestion is to ask questions. Missourians can call 573-751-3505 from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. weekdays or email the department at firstname.lastname@example.org. Frequently asked questions can be found at www.dor.mo.gov.
Questions can also be answered in person. Contact information and addresses for Missouri tax assistance centers can be found at dor.mo.gov/contact/assistance.php.
This year's tax filing deadline is April 17 because the traditional date, April 15, falls on a Sunday.
