If you're someone like me who tends to wait until the last minute to file your taxes then you're in luck because the deadline is a few days later than it usually is. April 15th, the usual day to file your taxes, is on a Sunday this year and the 16th is Emancipation Day (a holiday in Washington, D.C.), so the tax filing deadline this year is on Tuesday, April 17th.
My goal is to get my taxes done sometime in the next few days, but it is nice to know that I have a couple extra days if I procrastinate. Is anyone else like me and waits to the last minute to file your taxes or do you like to get yours done as soon as possible?
Knocked mine out in record time, for me.. which was like 10 days before the deadline. Finally learned enough as a self employed filer to at least save some money using an online service vs an in person CPA. It was like 4x cheaper that way. At any rate, I'm glad its over and done with. One of the most stressful times of the year to live in the US of A.
Next year is going to suck even worse, as I invested in cryptocurrencies in 2018 (like a good chunk of people no doubt)... from what I've heard, it's a nightmare to file all those trades and transactions.
