You've got 11 days to get your 2018 taxes filed with the IRS.

Filing an income tax return can be a scary thing for some. Financial expert Nicole Lapin says it’ OK if you still haven't filed, but when you do make sure you have the three "I’s" ready:

--Income

--Investments

--Info

Lapin says it’s important to consider the service you use to file.

"I suggest keeping value and ease of use top of mind. Hiring a tax preparer to file for you doesn't necessarily mean it will be done more accurately,” Lapin said. “You can DIY it with the very same result and filing with a reliable online service really empowers you to take control of your tax and financial situation."

4 in 5 Americans wish they knew how to get more money back when filing.
