New Tax Day

If you haven’t already heard, taxes will not be due on April 15 which is usually the norm due Emancipation Day, a little known Washington DC holiday that celebrates the freeing of salves in the district.

Emancipation Day falls on April 16th which is a Saturday but is observed on Friday, April 15th instead.  As a result, because the tax code states that filing deadlines cannot fall on Saturday, Sundays or holidays, taxes will not be due until Monday April 18th which is a nice benefit to all of us who have to pay taxes and who will not be getting any money back.
