(WTVR) – Tax day is less than a week away. If you haven’t filed yet, there are a few things to keep in mind to get extra money back in your pocket.

If you are still looking for deductions, start with your house. State and local property taxes, mortgage insurance and mortgage interest are some of the most common deductions.

Also take into account any higher education costs or job hunting expenses. Charitable donations and contributions to a tax deductible IRA are also fair game.

Your return and payment should be mailed together and must be postmarked by April 15.
