The IRS has extended the tax deadline this year to Tuesday, April 17th, and eTax.com is prepared to help taxpayers file their taxes on time. Typically, the tax deadline is April 15th, however this year April 15th falls on a Sunday. The tax code states that when the tax deadline is on a weekend, it’s moved to the next business day, which in most cases is Monday. However, in 2018, Washington, D.C. is celebrating Emancipation Day, which moves the tax deadline to the following day: Tuesday, April 17th. This gives taxpayers an additional two days to file their taxes, though eTax.com recommends not waiting until the last day to file, if possible.
eTax.com is ready to assist customers in filing both federal and state income tax returns right up to the extended deadline. The IRS requires taxpayers to file by the deadline to avoid penalties and fees. Early filing leads to quicker processing and a faster refund. Taxpayers can also file for a six-month extension if they are unable to meet the April deadline, though money owed to the IRS is still due by April 17th.
At eTax.com, taxpayers can prepare and file their tax returns easily and accurately with simple-to-use software. By guiding users through different topics, eTax.com's software calculates the appropriate refund amount, making filing tax returns a little less stressful for customers. eTax.com has a library of resources available to customers and offers toll-free live support seven days a week from trained professionals. eTax.com is ready to handle all customer tax returns and ensure accurate and affordable filing.
