Each year, “Tax Day” is April 15th & E-File Shuts Down on October 15th.
Each year, the deadline to file a tax return is April 15th. However, the e-file tax season doesn’t officially end until October 15th.
October 15 also marks the due date for filers who requested an tax extension.
You can either e-file your return or mail in a paper return by the tax deadline. Note that if you are filing a paper return, your return must be postmarked by April 15th in order for it to be considered on time.
The Last Day to E-File 2013 Taxes Was October 15, 2014
The 2014 Tax Season officially ended on October 15, 2014. That means, as of the October deadline, you can no longer e-file a 2013 tax return and will be forced to paper file your 2013 taxes.
Fortunately, RapidTax offers late tax return preparation. You won’t need to prepare your 2013 tax return on your own, but you’ll need to mail your return to the IRS. To prepare your 2013 tax return, create a RapidTax account and enter the requested information.
When Is the Last Day to File 2014 Taxes?
The IRS has yet to announce the date Tax Season 2015 will start. However, you can plan on the 2015 season to end on April 15, 2015. Regardless of when tax season begins, tax day remains the same each year.
April 15, 2015 is also the last chance to get a refund from a 2011 tax return. So if you missed filing for a couple years this could be a great opportunity to score a little extra refund money.
If you end up requesting an extension on your 2014 taxes, then October 15, 2015 becomes your new deadline. This is also the last opportunity to e-file a 2014 return.
