The deadline for most Americans to file their federal tax returns in 2022 is April 18, instead of the usual April 15 date. This is because of a holiday recognized in the nation’s capital.

The reason the deadline has been moved from April 15 this year is because Emancipation Day is a holiday recognized on April 16 each year by the city of Washington, D.C. When the date falls on a Saturday, it is recognized on Friday, and city and federal offices close. When the day falls on a Sunday, the holiday is recognized on the Monday after. In 2022, April 16 falls on a Saturday, so IRS and other offices will be closed on Friday, April 15. As a result, the federal deadline for reporting income tax will be Monday, April 18, 2022.

* Note 1: Delaware’s traditional individual due date is April 30, which falls on a Saturday this year.

* Note 2: Virginia’s traditional individual due date is May 1, which fall son a Sunday this year.

* Note 3: Maine and Massachusetts recognize Patriots’ Day on April 18, resulting in an April 19 deadline this year.
