It’s Only Wrong by Three Days

Friday’s Las Vegas Review-Journal included a free calendar (with a retail price of $2). Remember the cliche, “You get what you pay for”? Well, that was definitely the case with this free calendar.

Highlighted on Friday, April 15 is “Tax Day.” There’s only one problem with that—Tax Day is Monday, April 18th this year, not Friday, April 15th. Oops.

As the IRS noted
,

The filing deadline to submit 2015 tax returns is Monday, April 18, 2016, rather than the traditional April 15 date. Washington, D.C., will celebrate Emancipation Day on that Friday, which pushes the deadline to the following Monday for most of the nation. (Due to Patriots Day, the deadline will be Tuesday, April 19, in Maine and Massachusetts.)

Well, one would hope that the Review-Journal would check with their accounting department or just do a basic search or maybe ask a local tax professional before printing their calendar…and one would be wrong.
