When are taxes due in 2014?
For this year’s tax day (tax filing deadline 2014), the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) announced that the federal income tax due date 2014 is Tueday, April 15 2014. Just like normal tax day every year. No extended time to file your tax returns just like 2012 (which was due on Tuesday, April 17 2012).
If you plan to file taxes on time, you can do it by efile and it must submitted by 11:59 p.m. on April 15th. And if you’re mailing in a paper return, it must be postmarked by April 15. This also applies to tax extension, if you plan to get a file extension on 2013 taxes. Sometime people have their return rejected by the IRS. But don’t be panic. Your return won’t be considered late. You have time until April 19, 2013 to correct and resubmit it.
If you request an extension, your new tax deadline will be on October 15, 2014. Just like on tax due date on April, if you e-file your return before the October 15 deadline and it gets rejected, then you time until October 19, 2014 to fix the mistake and file your return again. Even if you miss both of these deadlines, you have until April 15, 2016 to file, but it will considered as a late return and you still get your refund.
IRS Plans Jan. 31 Tax Season Opening For 1040 Filers
Following the January tax law changes made by Congress under the American Taxpayer Relief Act (ATRA), the Internal Revenue Service announced today it plans to open the 2014 filing season and begin processing individual income tax returns on Jan. 31.
The IRS will not process paper tax returns before the anticipated Jan. 31 opening date. There is no advantage to filing on paper before the opening date, and taxpayers will receive their tax refunds much faster by using e-file with direct deposit. Some people can start to file starting Jan. 17 but some can’t file until later. Read more on Free File Opens January, 17 2014, Offers Free Tax Prep and E-filing from IRS.GOV.
