When Should You File?(p5)

rule
File Form 1040EZ by April 17, 2012. (The due date is April 17, instead of April 15, because April 15 is a Sunday and April 16 is the Emancipation Day holiday in the District of Columbia). If you file after this date, you may have to pay interest and penalties. See What if You Cannot File on Time? in Section 4, later for information on how to get more time to file. There is also information about interest and penalties.
If you were serving in, or in support of, the U.S. Armed Forces in a designated combat zone or a contingency operation, you can file later. See Pub. 3 for details.
