IRS extends tax filing deadline ‘April 18′ allowing 3 extra days in 2011 to file. IRS extends the tax filing deadline by 3 days to April 18. It’s that time of year again, but atleast there’s extra time.

The IRS kicked off the U.S. tax filing season, announcing on Tuesday that taxpayers will have a new deadline until April 18, 2021 to file their 2010 returns and pay their federal bills because of a holiday on April 15.

The agency also said that it would not be ready to process returns carrying itemized deductions until mid- to late February, because it has its own deadline to re-program its processing systems following the passage of a big IRS tax bill at the end of 2010.

April 15 is Emancipation Day, a holiday observed in the District of Columbia. Those who file IRS extensions will have until October 17, 2021 to file their 2010 tax returns.

Taxpayers who won’t be able to file until mid-February include those claiming itemized deductions on Schedule A, higher education deductions on Form 8917, and teachers claiming their $250 deduction for classroom expenses.

The federal agency has started posting filing information for the new season on its website, www.irs.gov.
