Tax deadline extended to April 17
WASHINGTON -- Taxpayers get two extra days to get their income tax returns filed this year.
The IRS said today the deadline is April 17, because April 15 falls on a Sunday and Monday is Emancipation Day.
Emancipation Day is a holiday observed in the District of Columbia, and according to federal law, District of Columbia holidays impact tax deadlines in the same way that federal holidays do.
