IRS delays tax filing and payment deadlines to July 15 for all taxpayers
The Treasury Department and the IRS are providing special tax filing and payment relief to individuals and businesses in response to the COVID-19 outbreak.
The 2019 income tax filing and payment deadlines for all taxpayers who file and pay income taxes on April 15, 2020, are automatically extended until July 15, 2020. This relief applies to all individual returns, trusts and corporations. This relief is automatic, taxpayers do not need to file any additional forms or call the IRS to qualify.
This relief also includes estimated tax payments for tax year 2020 that are due on April 15, 2020. First quarter 2020 estimated income tax payments are postponed from April 15 to July 15, 2020. Second quarter 2020 estimated income tax payments are still due on June 15, 2020.
Penalties and interest will begin to accrue on any remaining unpaid balances as of July 16, 2020. You will automatically avoid interest and penalties on the taxes paid by July 15.
