IRS Extends More Tax Deadlines to Cover Individuals, Trusts, Estates, Corporations, and Others
To help taxpayers, the Department of Treasury and the IRS announced in Notice 2020-23 the extension of additional key tax deadlines for individuals and businesses.
Previously, the IRS announced that taxpayers generally have until July 15, 2020, to file and pay federal income taxes originally due on April 15. No late-filing penalty, late-payment penalty or interest will be due.
Notice 2020-23 expands this relief to additional tax returns, tax payments, and other actions. As a result, the extensions generally now apply to all taxpayers that have a filing or payment deadline falling on or after April 1, 2020, and before July 15, 2020. Individuals, trusts, estates, corporations, and other non-corporate tax filers qualify for the extra time. This means that anyone, including Americans who live and work abroad, can now wait until July 15 to file their 2019 federal income tax return and pay any tax due.
