When are taxes due?

Tax Day will be on April 18 in 2023, it’s tax season. Traditional W-2 employees, self-employed sole proprietors like freelancers, independent contractors, or consultants, or “gig workers,” retirees, multi-member LLCs, and company returns.

What is the closing date for submitting taxes as a business?

There are two exceptions to the April 18 tax deadline:

1) partnerships 

2) S corporations

Have until March 15, 2023, to file their business report.

Why is April 18, 2023, Tax Day?

Most of the time, taxes are due on April 15. Unless that date happens on a weekend or holiday. In 2023, April 15 is Saturday, so Monday, April 17, is the next workday. But April 17 is a holiday in Washington, D.C., because it is Emancipation Day. So, tax Day was moved to Tuesday, April 18, 2023.

When do Taxes Have to be Paid on the 18th?

You have until 11:59 p.m., on April 18, 2023, to file your taxes. After midnight, you might have to pay late fees and fines. If you need extra time to file, you must ask for an extension, which we will discuss below.

The first expected tax payment for the first quarter is also due April 18.  This data is for people who don’t have much or any tax taken out of their paychecks, like freelancers, small business owners, and investments.
