Tax Due Dates
If a due date falls on a Saturday, Sunday or legal holiday, the next business day becomes the due date. Even though some tax due dates are the date you postmark the return, always assume the date is when the taxing authority receives the tax return (and payment, when applicable). This will avoid confusion that could cause you to be late and incur penalties.
