U.S. Tax Filing Day Moved from April 15 to July 15
Americans will have an additional three months to file their taxes amid the coronavirus pandemic, the US treasury secretary said on Friday.
"We are moving Tax Day from April 15 to July 15," Secretary Steven Mnuchin tweeted. "All taxpayers and businesses will have this additional time to file and make payments without interest or penalties."
He said he was acting at President Donald Trump's direction.
Mnuchin said Americans with refunds should still file now. "I encourage all taxpayers who may have tax refunds to file now to get your money," he wrote.
Usually, both the tax filing and payment is due on April 15.
Taxpayers can still request a six-month extension to file returns as they could in any other year.
The new deadlines announced by the administration apply to federal tax income payments only.
