2. Last chance to file your taxes
For those of you who haven't...today is Tax Day. Typically on April 15, the day was moved to Tuesday because April 15 is a Sunday this year, and Monday is Emancipation Day, a holiday in Washington D.C. celebrating the freeing of slaves in the district. Under the tax code, filing deadlines can't fall on Saturdays, Sundays or holidays. And if you still aren't ready to file to Uncle Sam, check out these tips to filing for an extension on the Huffington Post.
