This is a reminder to the individual taxpayers that they have until the April 18, 2011, to file their 2010 tax returns. Taxpayers have an extra weekend to file this year because of a District of Columbia holiday on April 15.
If you cannot meet the April 18 deadline, file an extension (Form 4868, Application for Automatic Extension of Time to File U.S. Individual Income Tax Return). Remember, however, that the six-month extension is to file a return only; it is not an extension to pay taxes due (see this article on the extension of filing deadline for individuals).
Also, remember that April 18, 2011, is the deadline for your first estimated tax payment this year (if you are supposed to pay any estimated taxes).
