Federal Personal Income Taxes Due April 17 This Year

NORCROSS, Ga., April 10, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Official Payments, a leading provider of electronic payment solutions, has good news for those who tend to procrastinate when it comes to completing their state and federal income tax returns. Because the traditional tax day of April 15 falls on a Sunday this year and the Washington, D.C., holiday of Emancipation Day falls on Monday, April 16, federal returns are not due until Tuesday, April 17, 2012.

"Thanks to the way the calendar falls this year, taxpayers can spend Sunday, April 15, gardening, relaxing with friends and family, and enjoying other pursuits this year," said Alex P. Hart, President and CEO of Official Payments."Plus, Emancipation Day falls on the following day and is a legal holiday in the nation's capital, so taxpayers get two extra days to file in 2012. On Tuesday, they can go to our website to make their tax payments in a way that's fast, easy and secure."

The process is as simple as logging onto and selecting the "Federal IRS Payments" button. Official Payments accepts debit and credit cards as well as other electronic payment methods for various federal taxes, including personal income taxes and federal estimated quarterly taxes. Taxpayers who create an account can schedule their payment early or wait until April 17 to log on and pay.

Official Payments was the very first electronic payment provider to be selected by the Internal Revenue Service and has been processing federal tax payments since 1999. Emancipation Day commemorates April 16, 1862, the day President Abraham Lincoln freed more than 3,000 slaves in Washington, D.C.
