Midnight Wednesday night is the filing deadline for those who received an extension to file their federal income taxes.
This year, everyone who was affected by the Oso mudslide was given an automatic six month extension.
The definition of “who was affected” — and who therefore got the automatic extension — is being based on what the Federal Emergency Management Agency said in April, according to IRS spokesman David Tucker.
FEMA’s declaration specifies residents of Snohomish County and the Tulalip, Stillaguamish and Sauk-Suiattle reservations are eligible.
Tax filers can either mail their returns today or file online.
Online filing is available at IRS.gov/filing, including the agency’s own Free File service. The deadline is midnight. Any returns physically mailed must be postmarked Wednesday. The Everett post office is open until 5:30 p.m., but some local offices might have more limited hours.
