IRS Confirms July 15 Tax Deadline

The Internal Revenue Service has confirmed that the federal income tax filing deadline is automatically extended from April 15, 2020 to July 15, 2020.

Taxpayers can also defer federal income tax payments due April 15, 2020 to July 15, 2020 without interest or penalties, regardless of the amount owed. This deferment applies to all taxpayers, including individuals, trusts and estates, corporations, and other non-corporate tax filers as well as those that pay self-employment tax.

There is no need to file any additional forms or call the IRS to be eligible for this automatic federal tax filing and payment relief.
