If you are like 40% of the population, you will file your tax return as soon as you possibly can in order to
A) get it over with and/or
B) receive your refund more quickly.
More than thirty-eight million taxpayers in the United States file by the end of February.
However, if you are one of those lifelong procrastinators who always waits until the last minute… This is not your year!
When are taxes due for 2012? Unlike last year, Tax Day falls on the usual 15th day of April, so this year your 2012 tax return is due Monday, April 15th, 2013.
In previous years (and to come in future years) you can sometimes get a few days extension due to a combination of interesting circumstances. In the United States, the tax deadline can never fall on a Saturday or Sunday. If April 15th lands on a weekend, taxes will not be due until the following Monday. Tax Day can also not be on a federal holiday.
