Tax Time Tips and Encouragement

This will be shorty but a goody for any of you who are still working on taxes. Yes, I’m right there with you during this season of tax time “joys.”

I’ve been working on them slowly over the past couple of weeks. I’m almost done, IF my printer starts cooperating better. (Why do printers always pick tax prep week for throwing temper tantrums!!!)

For those who might still be looking for tax time help, I did some research and added the IRS and State tax sites to my Tax Info Pinterest board.

When Are Taxes Due 2016?

Here are some more tax time articles that may be useful to you. And GUESS WHAT I just discovered. TAX DAY is NOT April 15, 2016 this year. It is APRIL 18, 2016!!! Hooray for Emancipation Day for a variety of reasons including being a holiday that staves off tax day one extra weekend. And YES, that is true for the California state taxes as well. 😉 Now that is GOOD tax time news!

I read this article by the Kansas City Star and at first, thought they meant last year. But upon closer reading, sure enough, they meant THIS year! Just to be safe, I then went to the IRS site and YES! They confirmed it,

“When to file

Generally, April 15 of each year is the due date for filing your federal individual income tax return if you are a calendar year filer whose tax year ends on December 31. If you use a fiscal year (which is a year ending on the last day of any month other than December), your return is due on or before the 15th day of the fourth month after the close of your fiscal year. If the due date falls on a Saturday, Sunday, or legal holiday, the due date is delayed until the next business day (for example, Friday, April 15, 2016, is Emancipation Day, so tax year 2015 returns are due Monday, April 18, 2016. Taxpayers in Maine and Massachusetts observe Patriots’ Day on April 18, 2016, so they will have until Tuesday, April 19, 2016 to file). Your return is considered filed timely if the envelope is properly addressed and postmarked by the due date.” Click here to read more.

I personally hope that I get my taxes in shortly. But just the sense of knowing we have an extra couple of days makes this a much more relaxing tax week, don’t you think?
