Extension Announced for Tax Payments

The COVID-19 pandemic has prompted the U.S. Department of Treasury to announce a three-month extension for taxpayers to pay their income taxes owed for 2019. The parameters of this include:

  • Individuals may defer up to $1 million in federal income tax payments
  • Corporations may defer up to $10 million in federal income tax payments

Whether it be an individual or a corporation, all those deferring payments may do so for 90 days without incurring interest or penalties.

It is important to note that this is simply an extension regarding federal income tax payments. April 15th is still this year’s tax deadline and your return should still be filed by this date unless you work with your accounting professional to secure a filing extension.
