The deadline for filing tax returns has been extended to April 18th, 2017 and eTax.com is prepared to handle all customer returns right up to the longer deadline. Generally, federal tax returns are due on April 15th unless that day falls on a weekend or holiday. This year, April 15th is a Saturday, so tax returns should be due the following business day. Because Washington, D.C. will celebrate Emancipation Day on Monday, April 17th, this day is not considered a business day. That moves the tax deadline to Tuesday.
Taxpayers must file their federal (and in most cases, state) tax returns by the deadline to avoid penalties. A six-month extension is available to taxpayers who apply, however this extension is only for filing. All taxes must be paid by the original deadline.
