Lazy Sunday watching TV, playing golf or just goofing around?
Forget about it.
Uncle Sam has other plans for the rest of your weekend.
If you haven’t filed your taxes yet, Tuesday’s deadline is almost here.
Because April 15th fell on Saturday, April 16 is Sunday and April 17 is a holiday in the District of Columbia, you have until midnight Tuesday to file your returns.
Even if you file for an extension by the deadline, tax experts say you must send in the amount you will probably owe by then. The IRS is always ready with interest and penalties for people who don’t follow the rules.
Monday’s holiday in Washington, D.C. is pushing the tax deadline to Tuesday. The holiday is Emancipation Day, observing the signing of a law by President Abraham Lincoln April 16, 1862 that ended slavery in the District.
You should probably check with the Post Office to determine last pickups Tuesday.
