Tax day in the US



April 15 is the usual due date, but it falls on a Sunday, when the Post Office is not open to receive mail. April 16 is a federal holiday in the District of Columbia, and the law does not allow the tax filing day to be on such a holiday. So, it must be post-marked April 17 or e-filed by then. A request for an filing extension, properly mailed and post-marked, meets the requirement, pushing the filing back another 6 months. Since I don't have it all done, that's what I'm doing. Ruby wants me to turn it in to a professional tax preparer. I might do that--but, the price might go up because I have income from my food plant job, and my pastoral work (the income from my pastoral work has different tax rules, because I must pay my own Social Security tax on it). The part I don't like is assembling everything. My ADD makes it more challenging for me to get things in order and not misplace anything.

A good thing not to put off till the last minute. I always got a rebate because I paid more than I was due to. Our mortgage payments were offset because we weren’t Americans. The laws may have changed since the 1980s though. My ex still owns land in the US.

If your taxation situation is complex (i.e. different jobs with different taxation requirements) I'd recommend going to an agent who specialises in your area. (in your case, pastoral care - the other job would be a no - brainer). You may pay for the privilege, however, the fee is usually (in OZ, at least) deductible, and often can be deducted from any return you may get, so no out of pocket expenses. Late submissions can also be mitigated by the use of an agent, too.
