IRS announced on its site that the filing of  US Federal Tax deadline is on April 18, 2011, instead of April 15 because of a holiday in the District of Columbia.  Federal Tax Forms are available from the site. Tax payers can file electronically through e-file or IRS free file.

For individual tax filing and those who cannot file on April 18, the October 17 extension can be adapted but according to the IRS news release, April 12, 2011:

“An extension gives you an additional six months to file your tax return. But keep in mind that an extension of time to file is not an extension of time to pay. All outstanding balances are due on April 18, 2011. “

The IRS reminded tax payers to “double check all figures” and to “check only one filling status.” Federal Tax Forms like IRS Free Files and Free File Fillable Forms can be obtained from the IRS site, irs.gov.
