Everyone is getting two (2) extra days to file taxes this year even without asking for extension.
Normally, April 15th is the deadline to file taxes with Internal Revenue Service (also called IRS). But this year we have up until April 17th to file taxes with IRS.
According to Internal Revenue Service website, there are two reasons when tax deadline changes this year:
- Tax deadline is April 15th, but this year it is Sunday, so it is moved to the next business day.
- April 16th is Emancipation Day in District in Columbia. It is legal holiday, so IRS moves tax filing to the next business day, which is Tuesday, April 17th.
Actually, last year tax deadline was also moved to April 17th for the same reasons like this year.
Please consult your CPA or accountant regarding your exact taxes.
