The clock is ticking down and the deadline will be even closer by the time you are done reading this post. Christmas is only about eight months away and Spring officially began three weeks ago so what are we counting down towards? Tax Day.

This year, the due date for tax day falls on April 18th, a Tuesday. The normal due date for Federal Income tax day is on April 15th so you may be wondering why the change of due date? According to, “due to April 15th being on a Saturday and the Washington D.C. Emancipation Day holiday being observed on April 17th instead of April 16, 2017, Tax Day is the following Tuesday.”

And just so you know, there is an extension for filing the tax forms but there is no extension for the payment of what you owe. If you do owe, you must make your payment by the tax deadline. If you are unsure about what the amount is that you may owe, get in touch with your tax adviser ASAP.

Tax season is a busy time around here at Clarity Finances, so we can relate on how hectic things can be come tax crunch time. Although we cannot do your taxes for you here at Clarity Finances, if you do get an extension and want assistance getting your numbers in order this is where we can assist you.

I wanted to take a moment to wish everyone of the Jewish faith a Happy Passover, which began April 11th and will end on April 18th. Since this blog post will be out a few days before, I would also like to wish a happy Easter to those of the Christian faith.

A few weeks ago I put out a blog post titled A New Chance for Growth. This was about some financial mistakes to “give up” for Lent. Let me know if you decided to give any of my suggestions a try and how it went. If you came up with your financial mistakes to give up, let me know, as I am always interested in learning something new. Either way, I’d love to hear from you!
