THIS YEAR TAXPAYERS will have an extra month to file taxes. Instead of the usual April 15 Tax Day, the Internal Revenue Service says taxpayers now have until 11:59 p.m. on May 17, 2021, to get those tax returns postmarked or emailed to avoid interest and penalties.
What else is there to know? Quite a bit more, if you're curious.
Why Tax Day Changed
IRS Commissioner Chuck Rettig said in a news release, "This continues to be a tough time for many people, and the IRS wants to continue to do everything possible to help taxpayers navigate the unusual circumstances related to the pandemic, while also working on important tax administration responsibilities."
