Tax Day

800,000 people have until October to file taxes because the IRS sent them the wrong form

Tax Day for most of us is just over a week away, but for as many as 800,000 Americans, taxes aren't due until October 15.

That's because the IRS sent the wrong form to hundreds of thousands of ObamaCare customers, and about 80,000 of them had still not received the updated form by the end of March. The White House previously announced that everyone would get a corrected form in time for normal filing, but the IRS has generally made good on its promise of a terrible 2015 tax season, so that hasn't happened.

If you are among the taxpayers who got the wrong form, you'll need to fill out this form before regular Tax Day to have the October deadline apply.
