Magento API returns dates in what timezone

I have been trying to find the answer to this for several hours… what timezone does the Magento API use? I am assuming that the Magento API returns all date values as GMT time because they do not append the timezone string at the end of the data. Is this correct?

I am wanting to use filters and want to make sure that the dates are being correctly interpreted in my offsite client.

  1. From my experience, all dates in Magento seem to be stored in GMT. You should be able to confirm this trivially in any particular case by adding a record at a known time and calculating the offset.
