The IRS announced today that the deadline for filing 2011 tax returns will be April 17, 2012.  April 15, the normal deadline, falls on a Sunday this year, and Emancipation Day falls on Monday April 16 this year.  Emancipation Day is celebrated in the District of Columbia, and District of Columbia holidays impact tax deadlines in the same manner as federal holidays.

Extended returns will still be due on October 15.
