IRS extends tax filing deadline to July 15 as coronavirus spreads, Mnuchin says
More relief for individuals and small businesses. Key Points –
- The Internal Revenue Services moved the national income tax filing day ahead to July 15, three months after the normal deadline for Americans to send in their returns.
- Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin announced the move, the latest emergency measure to deal with the financial fallout of the coronavirus pandemic.
- The extension will give “all taxpayers and businesses” more time to file returns and make tax payments “without interest or penalties,” Mnuchin said.
However, those individuals who expect to receive a refund, should still file on April 15, 2020 in order to get their refunds as soon as possible.
