April 15th Filing Deadline Extended to July 15th
Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin announced today that the deadline for filing tax returns has been extended from April 15, 2020 to July 15, 2020. The Treasury had previously extended the tax return payment deadline from April 15th to July 15th.
This date change only applies to federal returns otherwise due April 15th. State filing and payment deadlines vary and are not always the same as the federal filing deadline. The IRS urges taxpayers to check with their state tax agencies for those details.
