October 15, 2018 Tax-Filing Extension Deadline for 2017 Taxpayers
Jeff Storch | 10.03.18
On October 2, 2018, the IRS issued a release urging taxpayers who requested the six-month filing extension for their 2017 income taxes to double check their tax returns and file on or before the mid-October deadline.
October 15, 2018 is the last day for most people to file their personal tax returns for 2017, but some may have more time. Those who may have more time include:
- Members of the military and others serving in combat zone localities. (They typically have until at least 180 days after they leave the combat zone to both file returns and pay any taxes due.)
- Taxpayers in several disaster area localities who already had valid extensions now have more time to file. Currently, taxpayers in parts of California, North Carolina, South Carolina and Texas qualify for this relief.
