Due Date Has Changed
The Treasury Department and IRS announced that the federal income tax filing due date is automatically extended from April 15, 2021, to May 17, 2021 in IR-2021-59.
Please note – at this time the postponement of the tax filing deadline includes the deferred payment of taxes due for 2020 but does not include a deferral of the Year 2021, 1st quarter estimate. This deferral also does not cover the filing deadlines for state returns.
Taxpayers do not need to file any additional forms or call the IRS to qualify for this automatic federal tax filing and payment relief.
