(KUTV) — For those of us who have procrastinated on filing our taxes, there is still hope, as Tax Day is two days later than normal this year.
Normally, Tax Day is on April 15, which is a Sunday this year. Under normal circumstances Tax Day would simply move to the day after, on Monday.
However, April 16 is Emancipation Day — a holiday that honors the passage of the District of Columbia Compensated Emancipation Act in 1862. Emancipation Day ended slavery in Washington, D.C. by paying slave owners to pledge allegiance to the Union and free their slaves.
Therefore, Tax Day will take place on April 17 this year, but in 2019 Tax Day will return to its original date of April 15.
So procrastinators have lucked out this year!
Utah post offices will be open under their regular hours on Tuesday, but Provo and Salt Lake City offer the latest collection times.
