With fewer people filing paper returns, local post offices will maintain regular business hours on April 18.
The familiar April 15 deadline for filing federal and state tax returns is three days later this year thanks to a little-known holiday celebrated in the District of Columbia called Emancipation Day. It marks the day President Abraham Lincoln signed the Compensated Emancipation Act in 1862, which freed about 3,100 slaves in the district. Normally, the holiday is recognized on April 16, but when it falls on a Saturday, like this year, it is observed the preceding Friday. Under the tax law, District of Columbia holidays are considered federal holidays, which prompted the IRS to move the deadline to April 18. John Kasperek, owner of Manchester's Kasperek & Co. Accountants, said about half of his clients knew the deadline had been pushed back …
