Emancipation Day April 15 in Washington, D.C., pushes filing deadline to Monday, April 18, for most of the nation - including New York
By the New York State Department of Taxation and Finance
The New York State Department of Taxation and Finance today reminded taxpayers they can take three extra days to file both their federal and state income tax returns this year. The deadline is extended to Monday, April 18, because Washington, D.C., will celebrate Emancipation Day on Friday, April 15.
"The extended deadline provides a few extra days for the millions of New Yorkers who file their taxes late in the season," New York State Commissioner of Taxation and Finance Jerry Boone said. "However, just because there's extra time to file doesn't mean you need to wait until April 18. You can complete your return now with the user-friendly software on our website, tax.ny.gov."
The Tax Department's online "e-file for free" initiative enables taxpayers with federal adjusted gross incomes under $62,000 to save the expense of hiring a preparer by filing both their federal and state income tax returns at no cost.
