Tax panic? You've got 3 extra days

Still trying to navigate those byzantine tax forms? Worried you won't make the midnight deadline? Never fear: this year, you've got a few extra days to file.

Because of a holiday observed in Washington, D.C., taxpayers nationwide have until Monday, April 18, to file their returns for 2010.

Emancipation Day, a holiday observed in the District of Columbia, falls on Friday, April 15, this year. By law, District of Columbia holidays impact tax deadlines in the same way that federal holidays do, giving taxpayers three extra days to shuffle receipts and toss calculators across the room.

Need an extension even with the deadline push-back? You'll have until Oct. 17 to get your forms into the IRS.
