WASHINGTON — The Internal Revenue Service reminds taxpayers today that those who requested an extension of time to file their 2021 income tax return that the deadline is Monday, October 17. IRS Free File remains open until November 17 for those who still need to file their 2021 tax returns. This includes those who qualify for the Child Tax Credit, Recovery Rebate Credit or Earned Income Tax Credit but haven’t yet filed a 2021 tax return to claim them.
