This is the deadline for employers to send out W-2 Forms to employees and 1099 Forms to non-employees who provide services for the 2021 tax year.
If you claimed an exemption from income tax withholding on the W-4 Form you gave your employer last year, you must file a new W-4 Form by this date to maintain your exemption for an additional year.
2021 individual income tax returns are due, along with any taxes owed.
* The IRS has the authority to adjust Federal tax deadlines, including April 15. Most recently, it exercised that authority in 2019 and 2020 tax years. The IRS can make the change on short notice based on its assessment of financial or economic conditions.
