Ok, Marylanders, This is it. Really.

Midnight tonight is the Deadline

April 18, 2006

for mailing federal and state incme tax returns. State residents got three extra days to file this year, thanks to some quirks in the calendar: April 15 fell on a Saturday, and yesterday was a holiday in Massachusetts, where federal returns trom Maryland will be processed this year for the first time.

Taxpayers who still can't make the deadline have the option of filing for a six-month extension. Think twice before putting the checkbook away. The IRS wants you to estimate any tax due and pay up, otherwise it nails you for interest and you're liable for penalties.
