TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) -- The countdown to Tax Day is on! You have until Monday, April 18 to file your return.

Another thing to keep in mind before the deadline hits is to contribute the maximum to your retirement accounts.

Tax payers have until April 18 or 19, 2016, depending on your state residency, to make IRA contributions for 2015, but the sooner you get your money into the account, the sooner it has the potential to start growing tax-deferred.

Stacy Bush from Bush Wealth Management gave some last minute tips to get everything ready on time.

Bush said the three most important things to remember are: 

1. Get organized

2. Contribute the maximum to your retirement accounts

3. Fatten your employer-sponsored retirement plan.
