Tax deadline extended to April 17

If you haven't finished your 2011 taxes yet... there's still time.

The official deadline this year is April 17. Officials say the reason for the delay is simple - April 15, the traditional deadline, fell on a Sunday, when post offices are closed. Monday, April 16, is Emancipation Day in Washington, D.C., a holiday marking the freeing of slaves within the District during the Civil War. Federal law prohibits the tax deadline from falling on weekends or holidays.

You can file for an extension if you need more time - but the extension only covers filing your return, not paying your taxes if you owe the government money.

Returns must be postmarked by midnight Tuesday. In Austin, the only Post Office providing a late night postmark is the General Mail Facility at 8225 Cross Park Drive; check the USPS website for details.
