This IRS website says that they are due the 17th http://www.irs.gov/newsroom/article/0,,id=169369,00.html

Yes, that's right.

Yes, and do you know why its not the 16th? because the 16th is a holiday in the District of Columbia and thus the IRS is closed. Not just any holiday - its Emancipation Day, celebrating the day when Abraham Lincoln freed the slaves in DC. isn't that cool?!

Wait, now I'm confused! I thought Emancipation Day was the Juneteenth holiday, naturally celebrated in June. But this is April! Do I have to start a new thing for this? Please explain!

It's Emancipation Day for Washington DC - when slaves were freed in DC specifically, not the entire country. I say celebrate emancipation any day of the year you like!
