State and Federal Tax filing deadlines extended to July 15th
Treasury Secretary announced today that the IRS’ tax filing deadline has been extended to July 15th. This will be welcome news to not only taxpayers but the tax practitioners who were under the gun to get tax returns filed by April 15th in this tumultuous and uncertain environment resulting from the coronavirus outbreak. With this new change, both the tax filing deadline and the tax payment deadline have been extended to July 15th.
Consistent with the announcement from the Internal Revenue Service this morning, New York State announced during Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s press conference that it too is extending the filing deadline from April 15, 2020 to July 15, 2020. As the New York State income tax filing and payment deadlines are set to follow the deadlines set by the IRS, New York State will follow the federal extension. With New York States acquiescence to the federal extension, taxpayers will have an additional 90 days for both federal and state income tax payments and filings that were otherwise due on April 15th.
Taxpayers anticipating a refund from the IRS or NYS are not obligated to wait until the extended July 15th deadline to file but may file their return as soon as it is ready for filing.
