Once again, we’re facing taxing times. Fortunately, this year, you’re going to get an extra three days to prepare your tax return. Hello, my name is Paul Carroll. I’m the CEO and founder of Efficient Wealth Management, a boutique wealth management firm, based here in the Woodlands, Texas.
Due to a Washington, D.C. holiday (Emancipation Day) falling on Sunday, April 16th, that holiday is rolling over to Monday, the 17th. Now, normally, that’s after Tax Day but because Tax Day is already delayed, the deadline is now pushed back to April the 18th. All you need to know is you have three extra days to file your taxes.
Now, remember, even if you’re not ready to file your taxes, you do have the ability to file an extension. That extension will get you all the way to October 16th. It’s important you understand, though, that if you file an extension, you must make an estimated tax payment. I wish we had a solution for that, but get that paperwork in; you’ll be fine until October 16th. We wish you the best of investing success, thank you.
