IRS Launches 2012 Season with New Filing Deadline, Taxpayer Services and Reminders

The IRS has announced that taxpayers have until April 17, 2012, to file their tax returns and pay any tax due because April 15 falls on a Sunday and Emancipation Day, a holiday in the District of Columbia, falls on April 16. Taxpayers requesting an extension will have until October 15, 2012, to file their 2011 tax returns (IRS News Release 2012-1IRS Fact Sheet 2012-1IRS Fact Sheet 2012-2IRS Fact Sheet 2012-3IRS Fact Sheet 2012-4, and IRS Fact Sheet 2012-5).
The IRS will begin accepting e-file and Free File returns on January 17, 2012. The IRS continues to encourage taxpayers to e-file as it is the best way to ensure accurate tax returns and get faster refunds. The April 17 extended filing deadline applies to any return or payment due on April 15. It also applies to the deadline for requesting a filing extension and for making 2011 contributions to an IRA.
