2016 IRS Tax Forms
for Filing Your Taxes in 2017
Most IRS tax forms are downloadable online including the 1040, EZ, and Form 4868 extension form if you're running late (see below.)
Traditionally, all US residents must complete returns by April 15th.
When that date falls on a weekend or holiday, filers get until the next business day to submit their state returns.
In 2017, the filing deadline to submit 2016 tax returns is Tuesday, April 18, 2017, rather than the traditional April 15 date. Why? Because April 15 is on a Saturday and the Washington D.C. Emancipation Day holiday is being observed on Monday, April 17, so Tax Day is on the following Tuesday. That means there are three extra days in 2017 to file your 2016 taxes.
That said, the IRS has already begun accepting tax returns electronically beginning on Monday, Monday, Jan. 23, 2017. Paper tax returns also began processing on the same day.
