The IRS Tax filing deadline is on Tuesday, April 17, 2012.
Federal income tax returns for 2011 taxes are due April 17, 2012, two days after the traditional tax due date of April 15. April 15 is a Sunday, so taxes are typically due on Monday, the next business day. But Monday, April 16, is Emancipation Day in Washington, D.C., so it’s considered a holiday. So Tuesday, April 17, is the big due date for 2011 taxes.
What 2011 business tax returns are due on April 17, 2012?
Tax returns for businesses that file taxes with personal returns are due in April. This includes:
・ Sole proprietors and single-member LLCs filing Schedule C along with their Form 1040
・ Partnerships and multiple-member LLCs filing partnership tax returns on Form 1065 and Schedule K-1 with their personal tax returns.
March 15 is Due Date for Corporate Returns
Corporate tax returns, including those for S Corporations, are due March 15, or the 15th day of the 3rd month after the end of the corporation’s tax year. March 15 falls on a Thursday in 2012, so no extension on this date.
