May 28, 2020 The IRS has postponed tax deadlines for individuals and businesses due to the COVID-19 outbreak. The postponement generally applies to all taxpayers who have a filing or payment deadline between April 1 and July 15, 2020. Individuals, trusts, estates, corporations and other non-corporate filers qualify. If you need additional time to file after July 15, you can request an extension until October 15, 2020. Individuals taxpayers use Form 4868. Business taxpayers use Form 7004. Taxpayers must pay taxes they owe by July 15 to avoid penalties and interest. The IRS has additional information for taxpayers who owe taxes but can't pay. For more information, visit the Coronavirus Tax Relief page of IRS.gov.
