When it comes to filing and paying your federal and state taxes for 2022, there’s good news and bad news. The good news is that you have until Tuesday, April 18th, to file — April 15th is a Saturday, while the following Monday is Emancipation Day, which is an official holiday in Washington, DC.
The bad news is: you still have to file.
If you won’t be able to file your taxes by then — because of a family emergency, a large work project, or simple procrastination — what do you do? Well, one thing you don’t do is panic. You can file for an extension, and it won’t take long.
