The Internal Revenue Service announced that taxpayers will have an extra three days to file and pay their taxes this 2011 Tax Season. The Service explained that the extension is 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. Further, taxpayers requesting an extension will have until Oct. 17 to file their 2010 tax returns.
Happy Early Emancipation Day! Tax Filing Deadline Extended to April 18th
