The internal Revenue Service has extended the filing deadline for 2015 Personal Income Tax Returns (Forms 1040, 1040A, 1040EZ) to Monday, April 18, 2016. This is also the deadline for filing an Extension to file 2015 Federal Income Tax Returns.
Why is Tax Day April 18?
The regular tax return filing deadline is April 15th. However, due to the Washington D.C. Emancipation Day holiday being observed on April 15 instead of April 16, 2016, Tax Day is on the following Monday, April 18th.
