There are several tax deadlines to be aware of, including the federal deadline, your individual state deadline, and the late filing deadline. We keep them all up to date in this article.

When is the federal tax filing deadline?  

For most taxpayers, federal income tax returns and tax payments will be due on Monday, April 18, 2022. This means you must file your 2021 federal return or request an extension no later than this date to avoid a tax penalty. If you owe taxes, you have the option with TaxSlayer to file any time before the deadline and schedule your payment closer to April 18 if you’re not ready to pay. If you’re worried about making tax payments, there are options to help you avoid fees and penalties. Learn more about IRS payment plans

The filing deadline may be different for victims of federally declared disasters in 2021. To find out if you are eligible for tax relief following a natural disaster, visit the IRS website.

When is the extended filing deadline for 2021 tax returns? 

If you file for an extension, your 2021 tax return is due no later than October 17, 2022.
