Today is the filing extension deadline. Most taxpayers who requested an extension of time to file their 2019 tax return must file today.
Those filing today who also owe taxes should pay as much as possible to reduce interest and penalties. The extension of time to file is not an extension to pay. Taxes must be paid on the original due date to avoid any penalty and interest charges.
Federal Taxpayers should file electronically and request direct deposit for refunds, eFiling is fast, easy and secured.
The Internal Revenue Service reminds taxpayers who filed an extension that the Oct. 15 due date to file their 2019 tax return is near. Taxpayers should file their tax returns on or before the Oct. 15 deadline. For those who still owe, pay as soon as possible to reduce any penalties and interest.
Convenient electronic filing options, including IRS Free File, are still available. Taxpayers and tax professionals should continue to use electronic options to support social distancing and speed the processing of tax returns, refunds and payments.
Although October 15 is the last day for most people to file, some taxpayers may have more time.
The Internal Revenue Service today reminded business taxpayers that their 2019 tax returns and tax payments, as well as their first two 2020 estimated tax payments, are due on Wednesday, July 15.
The July 15 due date generally applies to any tax return or tax payment deadline that was postponed due to COVID-19. In April, the IRS said that this postponement applied to all taxpayers that had a filing or payment deadline falling on or after April 1, 2020, and before July 15, 2020. No late-filing penalty, late-payment penalty or interest will be due for payments prior to July 15.
IRS has easy ways to help taxpayers who need more time or payment options
The Department of the Treasury and IRS announced the tax filing and payment deadline of July 15 will not be postponed. Individual taxpayers unable to meet the July 15 due date can request an automatic extension of time to file until Oct. 15.
Due to COVID-19, the original filing deadline and tax payment due date for 2019 was postponed from April 15 to July 15.
The IRS reminds taxpayers filing Form 1040 series returns that they must file Form 4868 by July 15 to obtain the automatic extension to Oct. 15. The extension provides additional time to file the tax return – it is not an extension to pay any taxes due.
