Official 2018 tax-filing deadline set for Tuesday


Copyright © 2021 Roswell Daily Record

At some point every spring, Americans begin scrambling as they try to figure out what forms they must file and when they must file them in the new tax season.

The official deadline to file your federal income tax return each year can be a little shifty. Yes, it’s supposed to be April 15 — unless something interferes with that timing like April 15 falling on a weekend or a holiday, according to thebalance.com, a website for personal money management. Whenever a tax deadline falls on a Saturday, a Sunday or a legal holiday, it’s typically moved to the next business day.

That’s why the filing deadline is April 17 this year. April 15 is a Sunday and April 16 is Emancipation Day. That holiday might not be highlighted on your personal calendar, but it’s a legal holiday in the District of Columbia so it gives you an extra day to file.
