Normally, the federal filling deadline falls on April 15, unless it happens to be on a Saturday, Sunday or a federal holiday. The reason for this is because IRC Section 6072(a) imposes the deadline of April 15 for filing income tax returns. See also IRC Section 7503.
This year, however, there is a change in the tax deadline because the District of Columbia is observing *Emancipation Day*, an official government holiday that commemorates the day that President Lincoln signed the Compensated Emancipation Act. This law supported "...the release of certain persons held to service or labor in the District of Columbia." It also freed 3,100 slaves in the District, making DC residents the "first freed" by the federal government. In 2005, Emancipation Day became an official public holiday in the District of Columbia (D.C. Code § 28-2701).
In Washington DC, we are honoring Emancipation Day, and local government offices will be closed and many public services will not operate on April 15, 2011.
Because DC government offices will be closed on April 15, taxpayers have until April 18 to file our federal tax returns.
By the way, taxpayers in the State of Minnesota taking extensions to October 15 will get an extra long extension this year. Since October 15 is on a Saturday, the extended tax deadline is pushed back to Monday, October 17, 2011.
