Taxpayers Have A Few Extra Days to File Returns

D.C. holiday on April 15 pushes Tax Day to April 18.

For everyone worrying about getting their taxes done by April 15, there’s no need to rush.

In January, the Internal Revenue Service announced that taxpayers have until April 18 to file their tax returns.

According to an IRS release, taxpayers in Bucks and Montgomery counties as well as those nationwide have until Monday, April 18 to file their 2010 tax returns and pay any tax due because Emancipation Day, a holiday observed in the District of Columbia, falls this year on Friday, April 15.

By law, District of Columbia holidays impact tax deadlines in the same way that federal holidays do; therefore, all taxpayers will have three extra days to file this year.

Taxpayers requesting an extension will have until Oct. 17 to file their 2010 tax returns.

The IRS expects to receive more than 140 million individual tax returns this year, with most of those being filed by the April 18 deadline.

Um. What about state taxes? And local taxes?

State taxes have the same deadline. Check your local tax bill for specifics on that bill. Typically, there is tiered due dates that provide a slight discount for early payment.
