When are Individual Taxes Due in 2011?

So the biggest buzz about tax sea­son in 2011 is deter­min­ing when your tax return must really be filed!  This comes into play most often when you owe the IRS a check because you want to write that check at the last pos­si­ble moment.  Here is the skinny on this year’s due date.

If you look at your cal­en­dar this year, April 15th falls on a fri­day.  There is no hol­i­day on fri­day, but the fed­eral gov­ern­ment has moved the due date for income taxes to Mon­day, April 18th, 2011.  Why?  The answer isn’t so simple.

Sat­ur­day, April 16th is Eman­ci­pa­tion Day, which is a Wash­ing­ton, DC hol­i­day.  Because that hol­i­day is a Sat­ur­day, they will observe it on Fri­day, April 15th.  Now that April 15th is a hol­i­day, the fed­eral gov­ern­ment moved the due date to April 18th, the next busi­ness day.  Whew!

HOWEVER, don’t get caught in the state trap.  Make sure that your state tax return is sub­mit­ted by the cor­rect date.  Both North Car­olina and South Car­olina depart­ments of rev­enue have moved their due date for indi­vid­ual tax returns to fol­low the fed­eral gov­ern­ment and they are due on Mon­day, April 18th.  Be sure your state has done the same.

More impor­tantly, many of the tax forms will still reflect an April 15th due date.  While this is incor­rect, the money will not be spent to change the dates.  Enjoy the extra time this year if you need it!
