Income Tax Deadline

The income tax deadline for your federal tax return is approaching. Your 2009 tax return and any outstanding tax is due April 15, 2010.

To be considered filed on time, your tax return must be postmarked by the tax deadline.

If you don’t get your taxes filed by the income tax deadline, you can file an extension, which will automatically give you an extra six months to file.

You will not, however, get an extension to pay your taxes. To avoid any penalties, you’ll still need to pay your taxes due by April 15.

The income tax deadline for tax returns with an extension is October 15, 2010.
