Tax day is set for April 18, 2022 and many are wondering if they will see an extension as the date quickly approaches.

The deadline for 2021 happened after the passing of the American Rescue Plan.

There were various changes made to tax laws relating to stimulus checks and advanced child tax credits.

The IRS needed time to adjust for these changes so the deadline was pushed back.

In 2020 the pandemic caused a lot of issues in America, prompting the IRS to push the deadline back.

There has been no announcement for a national extension.
