Due Dates

Due date for 2011 is April 17th 2012
April 15th is a Sunday
April 16th is 'Emancipation day' in Washington D.C.

Generally April 15th is the due date for Individual taxes to be filed, but there are exceptions. If the 15th lands on a Saturday, Sunday, or holiday, then the due date becomes the next business day. Also, some taxpayers may be eligible for an Extension (see warning below) of time to file. Also, if you are owed a refund and miss the due date you should still file to regain at least part of your refund, if not all.

WARNING: An extension of time to file is NOT an extension of time to PAY. If you will be owing taxes this year and do not pay at least the full amount you owe by April 17th, you will be incurring penalties and/or interest! Generally, if you think you might owe taxes this year but need more time to file, it is better to slightly overpay, and send payment with your application for extension. Any amount you overpaid, and any applicable refund will be refunded to you once you file your tax return. It is highly recommended that you consult a tax professional in such a case.
