The IRS Extends The Tax Day Deadline

April 15th isn’t a day to fear this year because once again the Internal Revenue Service has extended the tax day deadline.  Last year we had until April 18th to file, this year taxpayers will have two extra days to file their return because the deadline has been extended to Tuesday April 17th.   The main reason for the extension is because the 15th falls on a Sunday and the following day Monday the 16th is Emancipation Day, a holiday in Washington D.C…  I remember when I first entered the work force I would fear the April 15th deadline because I would always owe state and federal taxes, but now being a home owner I actually get a return it’s not large by any means but at least it’s a return. 

If you’re anxious to file your return because you have some money coming to you, January 17th is the first day you can do so online with an easy e-file on the IRS website.  The IRS encourages us to file online saying it’s the fast and most accurate way of filing.  Now if you happen to need extra time you will need to file for an extension which gives you until October 15th to file your 2011 return.
