Update – Additional Tax Relief Because of COVID-19

On March 20, 2020, Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin announced that the due date for the filing of income tax returns will now be July 15 instead of the usual April 15. Secretary Mnuchin announced this on Twitter. As of 12:30 pm EDT, the Internal Revenue Service had not posted anything on their website.

Notice 2020-17, issued by the Internal Revenue Service earlier in the week, had extended the payment date to July 15, but not the filing deadline.

Secretary Mnuchin also encouraged those taxpayers who expect a refund to file quickly, so they can receive their refund once the return is processed.
