(FOX 11) - If you're scrambling to get your taxes done by the deadline this Saturday, or if you're simply procrastinating you have a reprieve because April 15 falls on a Saturday.
The April 15 deadline falls on Saturday this year. That would normally push the deadline to Monday. However, Monday is a holiday in the District of Columbia, so by law, the filing deadline is extended until Tuesday.
Meanwhile, tax officials are reminding low-income families and senior citizens those that earn less than $14,000 to take advantage of the 'earned income tax credit.'
It lowers the amount of taxes owed and can even mean a refund.
They're making a big push to get the word out.
If you don't make Tuesday's deadline, you can always file for an extension.
