Here is your last chance NOT to file an extension. Think you missed the filing deadline of April 15th? You are in luck. This year Tax Day has been pushed back to Tuesday – April 18 – because of a Washington, D.C. holiday.

Why is April 18th the new Tax Day this year?
- April 15th fell on a Saturday
- Monday April 17th and Washington, D.C. will observe Emancipation Day this year, bumping back the deadline for filing taxes to Tuesday, April 18.
On April 16, 1862, President Abraham Lincoln signed the District of Columbia Compensated Emancipation Act, a bill that ended slavery in the nation’s capital. To mark the anniversary of the signing of the bill, which took place nine months before Lincoln signed the Emancipation Proclamation, Emancipation Day is usually held on April 16 in Washington, D.C.
However, because Emancipation Day falls on a Sunday this year, it will be observed in Washington, D.C. on Monday instead. Many government and city offices will be closed.
