Tax day is Tuesday, April 17, 2018. This is the day your individual tax returns are due to the government for the 2017 tax year.
Tax day is typically on April 15. But in 2018, that day falls on a Sunday. The next day is also a public holiday in the District of Columbia, Emancipation Day. Emancipation Day is a public holiday celebrating the day President Abraham Lincoln signed the District of Columbia Compensated Emancipation Act.
If you're self-employed, don't forget about your estimated tax payments.
Believe it or not, there's still time to manage your 2017 taxes up until tax day. You may still be able to make contributions to your retirement plans and take a deduction. Be sure to read all the fine-print though, as different accounts have different limits.
The new tax law will go into effect for the 2018 tax year. That means you'll see the impact when you file 2018 taxes in April of 2019.
