April 15th means tax PAYING time, NOT filing time!
For many people, April 15th is a panic time. Running to the post office, all the media outlets chatting about the filing deadline. Well guess what? It is NOT the filing deadline. That is October 15th for individual taxpayers. April 15th is the day to settle up (approximately) your balance due for 2011! It does not mean you need to actually file your papers, and in fact I prefer to wait to file until May-June (or later) for many of my executive clients.
Please do not stress over filing by the 15th. Get the education you need and apply it in your particular tax situation.
