    Didn't realize this, but different states have different filing dates for state taxes, as well as different dates when you file for an extension as well. That is, if you live in a state that requires you to pay states taxes. No need to worry if you live in Alaska, Florida, Nevada, New Hampshire, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Washington and Wyoming.

    For 2017, state filing breaks down like this:

    State Tax Filing Deadlines - Due Dates for State Income Tax Returns and Tax Extensions

    As for federal filing, it's not April 15th this year, it's April 18th. And if you are filing for an extension to pay, that date to pay will be October 16th, 2017. Just keep in mind you still have to file by 4/18, the extension just gives you more time to pay (if you happen to have a bill).

    I'm such a procrastinator and I have a feeling I'll be waiting until April 18th to file. I love when tax day falls on a weekend and Emancipation Day falls on a Monday. Three days may not seem like a lot to many people, but it's a godsend for procrastinators out there!

    I'm actually very proud of myself this year. I got my taxes in with over a week to spare. It might help that I'm filing jointly for the first time and my wife doesn't share the same opinions as me when it comes to filing. Happy wife, happy life!

    Only one more day to go. Remember to file for an extension if you don't think you're going to be able to file by the end of the day tomorrow.
