More COVID-19 news from the U.S. government. At the daily White House briefing this morning, U.S. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said the April 15 tax deadline has been moved to July 15.
All taxpayers and businesses will have this additional time to file and make payments without interest or penalties, according to Mnuchin. The secretary said he was acting at President Donald Trump’s direction.
Mnuchin previously announced tax payments would be deferred for 90 days, but that Americans would still need to file by April 15. Now, the deadline for both has been extended into the summer.
The secretary also said he encourages all taxpayers who may have tax refunds to file now and get your money.
