Well, it’s that time of year again, tax season and the annual battle with IRS is about to begin. And, if you’re like most PE or VC firms, tax season means dreadful process of distributing K-1s to your LPs.
So, the Internal Revenue Service announced that the nation’s tax season will begin Monday, January 23, 2017.
Therefore, the filing deadline to submit 2016 tax returns is April 18, 2017, rather than the traditional April 15 date.
Why is filing deadline moved to April 18, 2017?
In 2017, April 15 falls on a Saturday, and this would usually move the filing deadline to April 17. Yet, Emancipation Day — a legal holiday in the District of Columbia — is observed on that Monday. That pushes the nation’s filing deadline to Tuesday, April 18, 2017. Under the tax law, legal holidays in the District of Columbia affect the filing deadline across the nation.

Make sure you are using an online portal to distribute K-1s and see that nothing falls through the cracks. And, don’t forget to take advantage of every aspect of digital age, and streamline your K-1s in a paperless way.
