Tax season opened on January 19th, and April 15th is usually the filing deadline, of course. But, things are always changing with tax deadlines and other laws, and 2016 is no different.
So, if you are filing taxes this year you need to stay up-to-date. In fact, the biggest change to take note of this year is that the deadline is now Monday, April 18th, 2016. This is because of the usual tax date, a Friday, is also a federal holiday. Which is Emancipation Day.
This later deadline is one positive. If you’re mailing paper filings you need to get it done by this date. Keep in mind that this is actually the last year for paper filing.
Below are a few more changes about this tax season you should also be ready for. Don’t forget to be on the lookout for possible changes as well.
