Tax Season opens January 19th

Following a review of the tax extenders legislation signed into law last week, the Internal Revenue Service announced on Monday that the nation’s tax season will begin as scheduled on Tuesday, Jan. 19, 2016.

The filing deadline to submit 2015 tax returns is Monday, April 18, 2016, rather than the traditional April 15 date. Washington, D.C., will celebrate Emancipation Day on that Friday, which pushes the deadline to the following Monday for most of the nation. (Due to Patriots Day, the deadline will be Tuesday, April 19, in Maine and Massachusetts.)
