Many Americans enjoyed their Easter holiday weekend; returned from Spring Break vacations and/or sat down to do their civil duty and file their taxes.
The deadline is here.
Yes, we dread it, but it’s required.
Don’t worry too much…you still have a couple of days until your returns need to be postmarked by the United States Postal Service.
Although Saturday was April 15 – the day we usually recognize as “Tax Day” – deadlines would be normally pushed until Monday, April 17. However, that date is Emancipation Day in Washington D.C., so everything there is shut down. Bonus day!
You get another bonus day if you live in Maryland as Tuesday, April 18 is “Patriots Day.”
So, tax returns are due April 19 if you live in Maryland and April 18 if you live in any of the other 49 states.
If you need extra time, you can file an extension. However, an extension doesn’t delay your payment. Any taxes you owe are due on April 18.
Don’t delay. Get cracking!
