Is it true that the tax filing deadline is different this year?

Tax Year 2005 Filing Deadline

April 15 is known far and wide as the dreaded deadline to file tax returns. However, in 2006, April 15 falls on a Saturday, so the deadline to file your 2005 federal taxes in most parts of the country is Monday, April 17, 2006. If you live in Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New York, Vermont, or the District of Columbia, you don't have to file your IRS tax forms until Tuesday, April 18, 2006. That's because Monday, April 17, 2006, is a holiday in Massachusetts where the IRS has a processing center.
