IRS postpones more tax deadlines 

The IRS has postponed tax deadlines for individuals and businesses due to the COVID-19 outbreak. The postponement generally applies to all taxpayers who have a filing or payment deadline between April 1 and July 15, 2020. Individuals, trusts, estates, corporations and other non-corporate filers qualify.

If you need additional time to file after July 15, you can request an extension until Oct. 15, 2020.

Taxpayers must pay taxes they owe by July 15 to avoid penalties and interest. The IRS has additional information for taxpayers who owe taxes but can’t pay. For more information, visit the Coronavirus Tax Relief page of IRS.gov.

Estimated tax payments normally due April 15 and June 15 are now postponed to July 15. If you or your business has a quarterly estimated tax payment due on or after April 1, 2020, and before July 15, 2020, you now have until July 15 to make your payment, without penalty.
