Normally you have to have your taxes filed by April 15th! (that would be tomorrow)

However.....this year, you have a few extra days! So if you are a procrastinator (like me), you can breathe a sigh of relief. You have until Monday 4/18 to get your taxes done...I'll explain.

Emancipation Day is a state holiday that is observed in Washington D.C. Normally it is observed on April 16th, but since April 16th is on a Saturday, it will be observed this year on April 15th (tax day). On Emancipation Day, all of Washington DC shuts down.

So because Washington D.C is basically closed tomorrow, the federal tax deadline has been moved to the following Monday for most of the nation.  Maine and Massachusetts have until Tuesday 4/19. State tax returns have also been extended to April 18th

Now you know....Get your taxes done!
