Why is Tax Day April 15?

Since 1955, Tax day has typically fallen on April 15. If April 15 falls on a Friday, Taxes are due the following Monday. If April 15 falls on a Saturday or Sunday, then taxes are due the following Tuesday due to the observance of Emancipation Day in Washington, DC. Which is why this year taxes are due on April 17.
