Greensboro, NC - It's one of the only things certain in life and it has arrived: the deadline to file your taxes.

"It's all taxes, all the time, 24 hours a day!, said Niki Robison, Operations Manager, Liberty Tax Services. "3:00 in the morning, nice bold cup of coffee, opening the doors at least by 5, 6, 7 some stores and as soon as that door unlocks, it's just crazy!"

In the past 24 hours Robison's Greensboro Liberty Tax locations have done almost 200 tax returns.

Monday, she expects to have another 50 at the store on High Point Road alone.

She says even though the clock is ticking, there is still time to file your taxes or an extension.

"Come in, bring your information, whatever you don't have, we can most likely find it," said Robison.

With just over 24 hours to spare, David Dixon took her advice.

"As long as its stamped that day I'm good to go!"

It's the first year he filed his taxes this close to the April 15th deadline.

With his W-2, property information, bills, receipts and more, he chose to get a tax preparer, instead of doing it himself online.

"It's better because if you have questions, you can ask them but you can't ask the computer the questions you need to ask, if you misfiled or something," said Dixon.

"The most important thing is to ask a lot of questions-there have been a lot of changes, we've got different credits that have gone away, we've got credits that have lowered and people are nervous and confused about that and that's what we are here for to help you with that," said Robison. 

Experts say when it gets this close to the deadline many people make simple mistakes like leaving off or typing in the wrong social security number.  That's a sure way to make the IRS reject your return.

Remember to:
Fill in requested information correctly
Attach all the appropriate forms
Use the right routing and accounting numbers
Sign and date the return

Monday is also the deadline to claim your refunds from 2009. Nationwide, more than 984,000 people haven't claimed their returns. That's an estimated $917 dollars in uncollected refunds.

In North Carolina, 26,000 people haven't collected money that's rightfully theirs.

The IRS estimating people will get their refunds within 21 days of filing.
