DID YOU HEAR?
The IRS has moved the Federal Tax return filing date to May 17th, instead of the usual April 15th deadline.
They site the recent legislature that included increased child tax credits, stimulus payments, and tax breaks for unemployment compensation as the reason for the month delay.
CAUTION: So far, this is for FEDERAL returns only. Check your state to see if they are mirroring the IRS or sticking with the April deadline. (When the IRS bumped the due date last year, most states did mirror it, however, it is important to double check!)
