As part of an update to a prior COVID-19 filing and payment changes, the IRS has now pushed back the second quarter will now also be due on July 15, 2020.

So to summarize, all returns that were initially due between April 1, 2020 and before July 15, 2020 are now due on July 15. Those are your typical personal tax returns and estate and gift tax returns, among others.  This relief is automatic; taxpayers do not have to call the IRS or file any extension forms, or send letters or other documents to receive this relief.

We do suggest that if you are expecting an income tax refund, that you file your personal tax return ASAP to expedite your money.  You should also note that you can file your return now, even if you owe money, and not write and mail your check until the payment deadline of July 15.
