In Mass., state, federal taxes due midnight Tues.

Posted: Updated:

BOSTON (AP) - Last minute tax filers in Massachusetts have until midnight to double-check their math before submitting their state and federal tax returns this year.

Taxes are typically due on April 15, but because the date fell on a Sunday this year, the tax deadline was pushed back.

Normally that would have meant that taxes were due the next day, but this year April 16 fell on Monday, Patriots' Day, a holiday in Massachusetts.

Monday was also Emancipation Day, a holiday in the District of Columbia, meaning that federal offices were also closed.

That means that in Massachusetts both federal and state income taxes aren't due until Tuesday.

Returns must be filed or postmarked by midnight.
