Tax Day 2016 Moved to April 18

It is a procrastinator’s dream come true!  Due to a combination of federal and state holidays, the 2016 tax day has been moved to Monday, April 18.

The change in date is due to the celebration of Emancipation Day, which is the day President Abraham Lincoln signed into law a bill ending slavery in Washington, D.C.  Emancipation Day is typically observed on April 16, which falls on a Saturday this year.  Because it is a federal holiday, it will be celebrated on Friday, April 15.
