Update: Tax Filing Deadline Has Also Been Extended
The IRS has extended the tax filing deadline to July 15. This announcement comes days after the deadline on tax payments was extended.
All taxpayers and businesses will now have additional time to file and make payments without interest or penalties. However, taxpayers who expect a refund should file as soon as possible and get their refunds once the tax return is processed.
Taxpayers may be able to get a further extension with Form 4868, which normally gives taxpayers until October 15 to file a return. It was not immediately clear how the delay in tax day would change the extension process.
