Delawareans face midnight deadline for filing federal tax returns; state returns due April 30th

Even with two extra days after the normal April 15th deadline, some Delawareans are still racing the clock to get their federal returns filed.

Citizens may visit irs.gov to have tax questions answered or file electronically.  The IRS is also available by phone at 1-800-829-1040.  IRS taxpayer assistance centers are also open in all three Delaware counties:  844 King Street in Wilmington, 611 South Dupont Highway in Dover, and 21309 Berlin Road, Unit 13 in Georgetown.  Hours are 8:30 a.m. until 4:30 p.m.  State of Delaware personal income tax returns are due April 30th.  “Taxpayers are welcome to electronically file their Delaware taxes on the same date as this year’s federal return is due – April 17th,” Delaware Division of Revenue Director Patrick Carter said. “Using the online system, though, allows taxpayers to schedule payments for any tax due until Delaware’s April 30th deadline.”  Delaware taxpayers may also file online at delaware.gov.
