Taxpayers Have Until April 17 to File Their 2011 Tax Returns

ONESOURCE, Tax Information Reporting, Trust Tax February 3, 2012

The IRS announced that taxpayers will have until Tuesday, April 17 to file their 2011 tax returns and pay any tax due because April 15 falls on a Sunday and Emancipation Day, a holiday observed in the District of Columbia, falls this year on Monday, April 16.  

According to federal law, District of Columbia holidays impact tax deadlines in the same way that federal holidays do. Therefore, all taxpayers will have two extra days to file this year. Taxpayers requesting an extension will have until October 15 to file their 2011 tax returns.
