It's Tax Deadline Day, 2009

It's April 15, the deadline for Americans to file their tax returns.

The I.R.S. says it received 102-million tax returns as of last week. That leaves about 20 million people who haven't mailed in forms yet.

Those who wait until the last minute to file may hit a wrinkle in their plans. This year the main Lexington Post Office Branch, on Nandino, will only stay open until eight o'clock.

President Barack Obama will mark the day by talking about restoring fairness to the tax code and giving tax relief to working families.

Tax protest rallies are planned in many states, including Kentucky. Tea Party Tax Protests are planned for noon in Lexington, Nicholasville, and Frankfort.
