This year, tax deadline is April 17th

Posted: Updated:

WASHINGTON - The deadline to file your taxes or file for a six-month extension is almost here.

Instead of the usual April 15th, it's Tuesday, April 17th, 2018. So why the extra two days?

April 15th fell on the weekend, an when that happens, the official filing deadline is the following Monday. But Monday, April 16th is emancipation day -- a legal holiday in Washington, D.C., so the deadline was moved to Tuesday, April 17, 2018.
