Servicemembers abroad have later tax filing deadline

Monday - 4/4/2011, 3:33pm EDT

If you're on duty in the military outside the united states, you can take a little more time to file your tax returns.

The Pentagon and IRS are giving you another two months, Defense.gov reports.

Some deployed service members already get an automatic 180-day extension...but there are some operations, like those in Japan and Libya, that don't qualify for that grace period.

Tax day for everyone else falls on April 18.
