If you still haven't filed your tax return -- relax - you've got some bonus days!

The usual April 15th deadline is extended 'til Monday, the 18th this year.

The IRS is observing a little known Washington, DC holiday callled Emancipation Day.

It marks the ending of slavery in the District of Columbia.

By law, local holidays in the nation's capital affect tax deadlines the same way federal holidays do.
