Tax Filing and Tax Payment Relief for Coronavirus (COVID-19) Pandemic as of 3/24/20
The Treasury Department and IRS are extending the due date for filing federal income tax returns to July 15, 2020. This applies to all taxpayers whose return would have been due April 15, 2020. There is no limitation on the amount of tax due for the extension to apply. The extension is automatic; Forms 4868 or 7004 do not have to be filed.
The extension also applies to any payment of federal income tax, including payments of tax on self-employment income, in respect to the 2019 tax year, as well as quarterly payments of estimated tax for the 2020 tax year. The period from April 15, 2020 to July 15, 2020 will be disregarded for purposes of calculating any interest, penalty or addition to tax for the failure to file a return or pay a tax due April 15, 2020. The extension does not apply to payments or deposits of any other type of federal tax, nor does it apply to extend the due date for the filing of any federal information returns. (Notice 2020-18, March 20, 2020).
This relief has no effect on state tax payments or state filing deadlines. Taxpayers are urged to check with their state tax agencies for those deadlines.
The interactive calendar highlights federal and state tax due dates, special firm events and other important dates that may be of interest to you. Because the calendar is continually updated, check back often to keep track of filing requirements, deadlines and other events that will help you stay current and up-to-date.
