Tax Day is April 17 This Year

Posted by taxguru on January 9, 2018

Everyone has long recognized April 15 as the official tax return filing and payment deadline because it’s been beaten into our heads for all of our lives.  It signifies the official end of the year’s fifth season, Tax Season.  However, because of the calendar, with weekends and an obscure holiday that is only recognized in the nation’s power center, it’s been a number of years since the deadline has actually fallen on April 15.

That’s the case once again for 2017 individual income tax returns (1040) according to this recent press release from IRS.

April 17 Filing Deadline
The filing deadline to submit 2017 tax returns is Tuesday, April 17, 2018, rather than the traditional April 15 date. In 2018, April 15 falls on a Sunday, and this would usually move the filing deadline to the following Monday – April 16. However, Emancipation Day – a legal holiday in the District of Columbia – will be observed on that Monday, which pushes the nation’s filing deadline to Tuesday, April 17, 2018. Under the tax law, legal holidays in the District of Columbia affect the filing deadline across the nation.
