Shhh! Don’t tell my tax clients they have until April 18, 2011!

Please don’t tell my tax clients this…

The IRS extended the 2010 federal income tax filing deadline to Monday, April 18, 2011 because Emancipation Day, a District of Columbia holiday, falls on Friday, April 15. Taxpayers requesting an extension have until Oct. 17 to file their 2010 tax returns.

I want to be finished doing tax returns by Friday April 15 and have a nice restful weekend, so please don’t tell my tax clients that they have 3 more days!

Seriously, most of my clients get me their information in enough time. We all prefer to be finished with tax season as soon as possible!
