Instructions for Form 1040-A

When and Where Should You File?(p7)

rule
File Form 1040A by April 18, 2011. (The due date is April 18, instead of April 15, because of the Emancipation Day holiday in the District of Columbia—even if you do not live in the District of Columbia.) If you file after this date, you may have to pay interest and penalties. See page 77.
If you were serving in, or in support of, the U.S. Armed Forces in a designated combat zone or contingency operation, you can file later. See Pub. 3 for details.
See the last page of these instructions for filing instructions and addresses.
