Tax Calculator and Refund Estimator for Tax Year 2010


Estimate Your Tax Return for Tax Year 2010 - Back Taxes or Tax Refund

You can efile your 2010 Tax Return until October 17, 2011. After that date you will need to download and print your 2010 Federal 1040 Tax Forms before you complete and mail your Tax Year 2010 paper tax return to the address listed on the 2010 1040 Tax Form. Click here for state tax return information.

This easy-to-use tax calculator will assist you in estimating your tax refund or how much you might owe in taxes. If you file a previous year's tax return after the deadline the IRS might apply late filing and late payment penalties plus interest on taxes owed. However, if you expect a tax refund and/or owe no taxes for tax year in question, the Internal Revenue Service penalties do not apply (because the penalties are based on the amount of taxes owed).

If you do expect a federal tax refund, you generally have 3 years to claim a tax refund from a previous tax year. For example, you must file a tax return for Tax Year 2010 by April 15, 2013 in order to claim a refund for 2010. For more information, you may call the IRS support line at 1-800-829-1040.
