Tax Day Extended to July 15

The IRS is extending the federal income tax filing deadline to July 15 as part of a growing effort to stem the financial pain from the coronavirus pandemic.

The move gives Americans three months more than they normally would have to file their income tax returns for the 2019 tax year, without incurring interest or penalties.

Tax payments that were due on April 15  now will be due July 15, regardless of the amount, according to guidance issued by Treasury and the IRS late Friday
