2010 Taxes Due on April 18th

You know how the tax deadline is usually April 15th? Well, the IRS adjusts the date, they are required by tax law, if it falls on a holiday or on a weekend. This year, the folks in Washington D.C. will be celebrating Emancipation Day [3] on Friday, April 15th. Normally the date is April 16th, the day in 1862 when President Lincoln signed the Compensated Emancipation Act, but this year they’re observing it on the 15th.

What does that mean for you and me? Taxes won’t be due until April 18th, that following Monday. If you are due a tax refund [4], I’d file as soon as possible so you can get your own money back. If you owe taxes, I’d wait until the 18th. 🙂
