The regular tax filing season for the 2011 1040 individual return is about over. The deadline is next Tuesday April 17th. The deadline is usually at midnight on April 15th. When ever the deadline falls on a weekend (Sunday this year) however, the deadline is moved to the next business day. Normally that would be Monday, April 16th, BUT…that day is a holiday in Washington, D.C. That is Emancipation Day, the day in 1862 that President Abraham Lincoln signed the Emancipation Act which freed the slaves in the United States. So, we get an additional day to suffer. Unless you have already filed your return. In that case you may set back and watch with amusement as those who have not filed yet struggle through the weekend. But, please don’t wait until Tuseday afternoon.
If you have not filed yet and would like help, you may contact me through this web site: george@RvTaxMaster.com or my other web site which is dedicated to all idividual and businesses: george@BusinessAndTaxPlanning.com. It’s not too late!
