Why is April 15th the deadline?

Tax day wasn’t originally in April.  When the 16th Amendment was introduced in 1913, the date was March 1st.  That changed to March 15th in 1918 and was then moved to April 15th in 1955.

While the IRS claims the move helps “spread out the peak workload,” tax experts suspect the real reason for pushing back the deadline is that “it gives the government more time to hold on to the money.”

Don’t forget that this year’s tax deadline was extended to April 18 to avoid conflicts with Emancipation Day.
