UPDATE: Exempt Organizations Filing Deadline Extended Until July 15, 2020Client Alert
In a recent announcement, the IRS has expanded the deadline for any taxpayers, whether individuals, trusts, estates, corporations, and other non-corporate tax filers, where a filing or payment deadline falls on or after April 1, 2020 and before July 15, 2020. These taxpayers now have until July 15, 2020 to file and pay any federal income tax that is generally due on April 15. The IRS will not assess any late-filing penalty, late-payment penalty, or interest.
While the extension to July 15, 2020 is automatic, any extension beyond July 15, 2020 requires the taxpayer or business to request an extension to file with the IRS.
