Anything Can Happen: Tax Day?... Naaaaaa
For all of you who are frantically trying to finish your taxes for the April 15th midnight deadline....
Relax.... this year you have two extra days!!
This is because Emancipation Day in the District of Columbia falls on April 16th. Since that is a Saturday, the district celebrates it on Friday, the day before. That means all the federal offices in Washington, D.C. are closed on April 15th.... including the IRS. Woo hoooooooo!
For more details see the IRS site's explanation.
[Important Note: Not all states go by this practice, so you might still be on the hook for your state tax returns!]
