The IRS continues to grant filing and payment relief to taxpayers. The latest IRS release IR-2020-66 expands the filing and payment relief beyond just those filings and payments due April 15, 2020.
The IRS’s latest announcement issued on April 9, 2020 generally provides an automatic extension for filing and payment to July 15, 2020 for taxpayers with current deadlines 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 additional time. This includes Americans who live and work abroad. This relief is automatic. Taxpayers do not need to contact the IRS or file extension forms, letters or documents to receive this relief.
IRS Notice 2020-23 also aligns the Q1 and Q2 2020 estimated tax payments. They are now both due July 15, 2020.
