Tax Filing Day April 18th for 2016

submitted 305 days ago by CouponNut in "Member's Lounge"
Relax an extra 3 days! The IRS has extended the filing of taxes for 2016 with the deadline date of April 18th, due to Emancipation Day. Emancipation Day is Washington D.C.state holiday and is always recognized on April 16th, however with this year falling on a Saturday, it will be recognized on April 15th and the Federal Offices closed.




On April 16, 1862, Abraham Lincoln, who was the US president at the time, signed the Compensated Emancipation Act, which freed more than 3000 slaves in the District of Columbia.



On January 4, 2005, Mayor Anthony A. Williams signed legislation making Emancipation Day an official public holiday in the District. Although Emancipation Day occurs on April 16, by law when April 16 falls during a weekend, Emancipation Day is observed on the nearest weekday

    The IRS is cracking down on healthcare for 2015, so I hope you have the information showing on your W2 (box 15) or have received at 1095A form from the Marketplace or 1095B or 1095C from your employer. Most tax accountants will not file your return without this information.
