I bet some of you are wondering why it's not the 15th this year. Well, it just so happens that there are two particular holidays which interfere with government operations. Emancipation Day, which is the holiday that celebrates Lincoln's signing of the Compensated Emancipation Act in 1862. It will be observed on the 15th of April. For those living in Maine or Massachusetts, your tax day is the 19th because of Patriot's Day. It's the holiday that commemorates the battles of Lexington and Concord in 1775.
Remember, estimated tax payments are still due on the 18th, no matter what state you live in because the IRS office that receives them is in another state that doesn't observe Patriot's Day.
That being said, don't push your luck folks, get those returns in.

I'm also a late filer. It's nice to have a few extra days this year. I'm hoping to get it done by Friday, but there's a pretty good chance I'll be heading to the post office Monday afternoon.
