Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin recently tweeted that “We are moving Tax Day from April 15 to July 15. All taxpayers and businesses will have this additional time to file and make payment without penalties and interest.” He indicated he was acting at President Trump’s direction.
The Internal Revenue Service previously extended the federal income tax payment deadline to July 15th for many individuals and businesses. However, this extension did not apply to the actual filing of tax returns which was sought by many practitioners and taxpayers.
We are continually monitoring this situation and will report accordingly.
