No the above is not a typo or mistake. While federal tax day is typically April 15th, it falls on Monday, April 18th, in 2016. Why? Efile.com says it is because Washington, D.C. is celebrating Emancipation Day on Friday, April 15th. Some states are changing their tax due day to correspond to the federal due date for 2016 while others are not. South Carolina changed its due date for tax filing to April 18th.
