April 18 is the deadline for filing US income tax returns
Generally, your tax return must be postmarked no later than April 15 or sent no later than that date if you’re filing electronically. When April 15 falls on a weekend, the deadline is pushed to the following business day. In 2017 April 17th is a DC holiday so an extra day has been added.
Tax Day 2016 is Tuesday, April 18, for all US taxpayers.
Procrastinating with taxes is a familiar phenomenon, but if you don’t pull it together before the deadline, things can get tricky. If you know you won’t be able to file on time, or don’t have the money to pay, don’t ignore your taxes altogether. File an extension form on time and look into a payment plan. The IRS charges interest and does collect.
