Amid the coronavirus pandemic, U.S. Treasury Sec. Steve Mnuchin announced Friday morning that the deadline to file taxes with the Internal Revenue Service has been pushed to July 15 this year. The deadline applies to federal taxes only.
“At @realDonaldTrump’s direction, we are moving Tax Day from April 15 to July 15,” Mnuchin announced on Twitter. “All taxpayers and businesses will have this additional time to file and make payments without interest or penalties.”
Earlier in the week, Mnuchin announced that Americans who owe taxes can defer their payment for 90 days, interest and penalty free, up to $1 million.
