Oops! Forgot it was Tax Day?

P.S. If you did forget to do your taxes or are just running out of time to finish them up, you can most likely file an extension with the IRS and extend your filing date to October 17th with Turbotax. Turbotax will walk you through this paperwork which takes just a few minutes — but do note that the extension request does have to be filed by April 18.
