For all my fellow procrastinators out there: “Lah dee dah, we’ll think about it tomorrow”
A merciful reprieve this year according to The Balance:
Generally, April 15 is the official deadline for filing your federal income tax return each year, but that date isn’t carved in stone. The deadline moves to the next business day when April 15 falls on a Saturday, a Sunday, or a legal holiday, and other national events can shift it as well. For example. the tax filing deadline in 2022 is April 18 (or April 19 if you live in Maine or Massachusetts).
April 15 falls on a weekday in 2022, but it is Emancipation Day which is celebrated in Washington, D.C., causing all businesses and government offices to close. Therefore, the filing deadline for your 2021 personal tax return—Form 1040 or Form 1040-SR—is Monday, April 18, 2022 (April 19 if you live in Maine or Massachusetts).
