For those who haven’t done so, tax preparers say now is the time to work on those 2010 income taxes. The deadline for filing taxes with the Internal Revenue Service is April 18.Typically April 15, the deadline is three days later this year due to a little-known holiday observed in Washington, D.C., called Emancipation Day. But just because there’s three extra days, tax preparers say that’s no reason to wait around when it comes to taxes.
