Philadelphia Extends the Annual Tax Filing and Payment Deadline This Year to April 18, 2011


The deadline of any city annual tax returns or payments customarily due on the 15th of April – Business Privilege Tax, Net Profits Tax, School Income Tax and Earnings Tax, annual reconciliation have been automatically extended to April 18, 2011.  Note that the extension of the

due date does not impact other monthly taxes due on the 15th of each month.  The City allows this extension to make it easier for taxpayers by making the federal and the city taxes due on the same day.   


This year the IRS is extending the federal income tax deadline to April 18, 2011.  Taxpayers will have until Monday, April 18, 2011 to file their 2010 federal income tax returns and pay any tax due because Emancipation Day, a holiday observed in the District of Columbia, falls this year on Friday, April 15, 2011. By law, District of Columbia holidays impact tax deadlines in the same way that federal holidays do.  Therefore, all taxpayers will have three extra days to file this year. Taxpayers requesting an extension will have until October 17, 2011 to file their 2010 tax returns.
