Income Tax Deadline Nears

We normally think of April 15 as the Federal Income Tax filing deadline. This year, because the 15th is a Saturday and Emancipation Day, the 16th - celebrated in the District of Columbia and nowhere else - is a Sunday, it gives all Federal employees in greater DC Monday, the 17th off.

Therefore, your actual deadline is April 18. Go figure, another couple of days to procrastinate before filing.
