If you’re still trying to get your taxes finished, you might be glad that tax day is three days later than usual. This year, April 15th falls on a Saturday, which postpones the deadline to the next legal workday. Sunday, April 16th is Emancipation day in Washington D.C.. Because it falls on a weekend, Monday, April 17th is the legal holiday in D.C.. Under the tax code, legal holidays in the nation’s capital affect the tax-filing nationwide. Tax day is officially Tuesday, April 18th.
File your taxes or apply for a six-month filing extension by midnight.
