#Good news! The IRS has extended the tax deadline to April 18th! As long as you submit your federal return by midnight on 4/18/2018, you won't be considered a late filer for your federal return. Direct debit tax payments that are submitted with your federal return (or on the IRS website) by 4/18 are also considered timely filed ×

I won $5 from a lottery ticket. Do I need to claim that as income?

Yes. Even if you don’t receive Form W-2G showing how much you received, you’re still required to report your lottery winnings as income on your tax return.
