Filing Deadlines for the 2017 tax season

This year (2018), several due dates for the 2017 US tax filings will be adjusted because the regular filing day falls on a weekend or legal holiday.  These include the Individual and FBAR due dates.

For more information, particularly about other forms and filings not listed, see the IRS Website and the IRS calendar information HERE.  Check when tax returns are due for all states in which taxpayers operate, because individual states may not conform to the Federal filing dates.

FBAR (FinCEN Form 114). (can be extended until October 15 with Form 1040).   Reports of Foreign Bank and Financial Accounts (FinCEN 114, FBAR) will be due on the same due date as the individual Form 1040 and permitted to extend for six months, thus aligning the FBAR reporting with the individual tax return reporting. Additionally, the IRS may waive the penalty for failure to file a timely extension request for any taxpayer required to file for the first time.
