- The deadline for individual income tax returns is April 17, 2012
- Partnerships and Corporations must file before March 15, 2012
The IRS is giving taxpayers two extra days.
The extension was granted because April 15 falls on a Sunday this year, and Monday is Emancipation Day, a holiday in Washington D.C. that celebrates the freeing of slaves in the district. Last year, Tax Day was extended until April 18, also thanks to Emancipation Day.
