Extension of 2020 US Tax Filing Deadline
The IRS has announced that due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the April 15th tax filing and payment deadline has been extended to July 15th 2020.
This is being done automatically by the IRS, and there is no requirement to apply for this extension.
Furthermore, federal tax payments that were due for payment on April 15th will also be deferred to July 15th, without penalties or interest.
This is certainly welcome for filers who were experiencing difficulties in collating information to prepare and file their returns in a timely manner before April 15th.
