2010 Tax Due Date April 18, 2011

submitted on January 24, 2011 by CouponNut in "Member's Lounge"
By now, some of you may already have your 2010 W-2 and 1099s in hand. If not, it won't be long. So it's not too soon to think about starting your 2010 Form 1040. Before you begin, there are some key changes to note. Here's what you need to know.

Even though April 15 falls on a Friday this year, the deadline for your 2010 Form 1040 is Monday April 18. Reason: Emancipation Day is a District of Columbia holiday, and it falls on April 15. So the tax filing deadline for the whole nation is deferred to April 18 . If your return won't be ready by then, you can extend the deadline all the way out to October 17 by filing Form 4868 on or before April 18.

    I did my taxes and the Federal Government will will not be accepting any taxes submitted on line until at least the middle of February if you had to do the 1040 with deductions. I question the fact that they are not ready because of new tax laws that were put on place. I am not happy and I am not buying the explanation that is given! There is nothing anyone can do except sit back and wait. Artistic

    The IRS is implementing new tactics for those of us that itemize deductions. I'd like to call it radar, a.k.a red flags for people who have not itemized in previous years.

      I can't believe I don't have mine done yet, because I'm too busy doing corporate tax returns!

    Today Emancipation Day is observed in Washington D.C. which is when Abraham Lincoln signed the law ending slavery, April 16, 1862. This is why the government gives us an extra 3 days for filing our tax returns.

      Every year the main post office here stays open until midnight. The employees stand outside so all the procrastinators can drive through and hand them their envelopes (if they have to send the IRS a check). The local TV stations will put the whole scene on the 10 pm news, be sure to wave! Mr Green

      Actually, you have all weekend...
