Still Not Done With Your Taxes?

PC Mag: “Here’s 8 Crucial Tips for Last-Minute E-Filers If you haven’t filed your taxes this year, don’t worry. This no-nonsense guide will help you find all the documents you need, quickly identify big deductions, and get everything done ahead of the deadline. Are you going to be late filing taxes? You might be if you follow the dates from the last couple of years. Traditionally, in the United States, you are supposed to file your federal income taxes by April 15. And that’s the rule this year, for the first time in a while, since the 15th isn’t falling on a weekend. Nor is it being held up by the legal holiday in the District of Columbia on the 16th called Emancipation Day, which commemorates the end of slavery in the district in 1862. Some states give a little extra time for the state taxes. But even those state residents have to file federal taxes by Monday the 15th. State tax deadlines after the 15th this year include:

  • April 17: Massachusetts and Maine
  • April 20: Oklahoma (but only for e-returns)
  • April 22: Hawaii
  • April 30: New Mexico (only for e-returns), Delaware, and Iowa
  • May 1: Virginia
  • May 15: Louisiana

You also may earn an extension if you live in a place that has experienced a recent natural disaster. If you live in Alaska, Florida, Nevada, New Hampshire, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Washington, or Wyoming, you don’t have to worry about state income tax at all…”
