Federal Income Tax filing date pushed back to July 15
The required federal income tax filing date on April 15 has been pushed back until July 15 after the Secretary of Treasury deemed it is affected by the COVID-19 emergency.
Affected taxpayers do not have to file Forms 4868 or 7004. There is no limitation on the amount of the payment that may be postponed. The relief provided is available solely with respect to federal income tax payments (including payments of tax on self-employment income) and federal income tax returns due on April 15 for the 2019 taxable year.
No extension is provided in this notice for the payment or deposit of any other type of federal tax, or for the filing of any federal information return. As a result of the postponement of the due date for filing federal income tax returns and making federal income tax payments from April 15, 2020, to July 15, 2020, the period beginning on April 15, 2020, and ending on July 15, 2020, will be disregarded in the calculation of any interest, penalty, or addition to tax for failure to file the Federal income tax returns or to pay the Federal income taxes postponed by this notice. Interest, penalties, and additions to tax with respect to such postponed Federal income tax filings and payments will begin to accrue on July 16, 2020.
