Today is tax deadline day.
If you're one of the many people wondering why taxes weren't due on the traditional filing deadline of April 15th, it was because the date fell on a Sunday.
Monday also couldn't be the big day because it was a holiday in Washington, DC.
Government workers had yesterday off for Emancipation Day, which marks the day President Lincoln signed the Compensated Emancipation Act back in 1862.
Therefore, your federal, state, and local taxes are due today.
