The 2019 tax filing deadline for individuals, corporations and fiduciaries (estates and trusts) has been extended to from April 15, to July 15, 2020. The good news is that now the filing deadline and required payment deadline are the same, so if you owe taxes and also need more time to file, you won’t need to file for an extension of time and/or make a payment of your taxes until the 15th of July, without any associated penalties or interest. Additionally, if you typically make estimated tax payments, the first quarterly payment for the 2020 tax year can be made on July 15th, instead of the 15th of April, when it’s normally due Of course, if you are due a Federal tax refund and are ready to file your 2019 tax return it’s a good idea to do so in order to expedite your refund.
