Treasury Department Offers Taxpayer Relief During Coronavirus Pandemic

By |April 2nd, 2020|Featured Update|0 Comments

NOTE: The below represents an update to our original blog of the same title, amended to incorporate Treasury’s superseding guidance.

Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin announced March 20 that taxpayers will now have 90 extra days to fulfill their federal income tax obligations, extending the April 15, 2020, deadline for tax filing and payments to July 15, 2020.

The IRS released superseding guidance in Notice 2020-18, stating that the extension was a result of President Trump’s issuance of an emergency declaration under the Robert T. Stafford Disaster Relief and Emergency Assistance Act due to the COVID-19 pandemic. While the original Notice extended the deadline for payments only, the superseding Notice extends both the payment and filing deadlines to July 15.

“The Emergency Declaration instructed the Secretary of the Treasury ‘to provide relief from tax deadlines to Americans who have been adversely affected by the COVID-19 emergency,’” according to the Notice.

The IRS announced that the extension applies […]
