Final Day to File 2021 Taxes Without Late Fees

There’s no more time to delay—the deadline to file your taxes is today.

This year’s deadline is May 17, a month later than usual because of the pandemic.

Many people who filed later in the season may have to wait a while for their tax returns.

An unusually large backlog of returns from 2019 and 2020 are being processed and are likely to be delayed.

The IRS also says it is taking longer to process mailed documents, such as paper tax returns, and related correspondence.
