What is the tax deadline for 2013?
Each year from January to April, Americans experience the fifth season of the year – tax season. If you’re asking yourself “When are income taxes due?” We’ve researched and found the answer, just keep reading!

According the IRS, your 2012 Federal Tax Return is due by April 15, 2013. However, each state has a different income tax due date.

State income tax due dates (from efile.com)
If you live in Alaska, Florida, Nevada, New Hampshire, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Washington, or Wyoming, you do not have to pay state individual income tax because these states do not require it. Below you’ll find your state’s income tax deadline if you do not live in one of these states with no income tax.

  • Alabama, Arizona, Arkansas, California, Colorado, Connecticut, District of Columbia, Georgia, Idaho, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Maryland, Michigan, Minnesota, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, North Carolina, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, South Carolina, Utah, Vermont, West Virginia, and Wisconsin are due 4/15/2013.
  • Maine and Massachusetts are due 4/16/2013.
  • Hawaii is due 4/20/2013.
  • Delaware and Iowa are due 4/30/2013.
  • Virginia is due 5/1/2013.
  • Louisiana is due 5/15/2013.

Other tax due dates
The last day to e-file a 2012 income tax return for tax extension filers or late tax return filers is October 15, 2013. If you have to file a 2012 tax amendment, you can do so at anytime. Generally, you have three years from the original due to claim a tax refund, so the due date would be April 15, 2016. Remember, there’s no deadline for filing a tax return for a previous year, but you can only claim a refund within three years from that year’s tax return due date.

The IRS also offers extended tax deadlines for residents of areas affected by natural disasters, such as hurricanes, storms, wildfires, and other types of federally declared disasters. You can get more information about disaster assistance here and learn when income taxes are due for those affected by natural disasters.

If you moved for a job in 2012, you may be able to deduct your moving expenses, providing your move was closely related to the start of work and you meet the requirements of the distance and time tests.
