Due to COVID-19 Outbreak

Washington – Following President Donald J. Trump’s emergency declara on pursuant to the
Stafford Act, the U.S. Treasury Department and Internal Revenue Service (IRS) yesterday announced
that the tax filings and payments for all federal income taxes (including self-employment tax) due
on April 15, 2020, regardless of amount, will now be due on July 15, 2020.
“At President Trump’s direc on, we are moving Tax Day from April 15 to July 15,” said Secretary
Steven T. Mnuchin. “All taxpayers and businesses will have this addi onal me to file and make
payments without interest or penal es. I encourage all taxpayers who may have tax refunds to file
now to receive those funds as quickly as possible.”
Taxpayers are not required to file any documenta on to take advantage of this delay, and no
interest or penal es will be assessed in connec on with this extension. This is an expansion of the
relief previously announced on March 18, 2020.
This relief only applies to federal income tax (including tax on self-employment income) payments
otherwise due April 15, 2020, not state tax payments or deposits or payments of any other type of
federal tax.
Treasury and IRS will issue addi onal guidance as needed and con nue working with Congress, on a
