CHARLOTTE, N.C. (QC Life) - Tax season is underway in the United States, and the April 18 due date will be here before you know it.

Filings for 2021 federal tax returns opened Jan. 24, and will remain so all the way through the April end date.

Arthur Bartlett, the director of the Charlotte Center for Legal Advocacy, joined the QC Morning show to make North Carolinians aware of five things that taxpayers in the Tar Heel State should know.

Among the things Bartlett pointed out is that the third “stimulus check” does not need to be included in your gross income. He also offered some advice on how to avoid fraudulent tax preparers, and gave some options of where taxpayers can go for help.
