The federal tax deadline has been extended from April 15 to July 15 due to the Coronavirus pandemic, officials announced Friday.
The White House had announced previously they were deferring tax payments for 90 days, but that Americans would still need to file by April 15. Now, the filing deadline will be extended into the summer, as well.
Filing requirements remain influx for many taxpayers, however, as some state and local deadlines remain April 15, as of now. Many local governments have announced intentions to adjust their deadlines, however, so it’s expected some if not most will change.
