If IRS is extending payment date for 90 days without penalties, is there anything we can do for our clients that have already been filed and April 15 chosen as the payment date? Have already had one client that called to see if payment date could be changed since his return has already been electronically filed.
And what about clients that have been already filed and had to pay penalties?
Any thoughts from anyone?
If you meant the literal "how-to" then I defer verbatim to the Lacerte Letter almighty:
"To cancel the payment, call the U.S. Treasury Financial Agent at 1-888-353-4537 no later than 2 business days prior to the payment (settlement) date. Cancellation of a required estimated tax payment could lead to penalties and interest charges."
"And what about clients that have been already filed and had to pay penalties?"
Nothing I've seen discusses an elimination or waiver of penalties you already owe because of 2019 actions. They only mentioned no penalty and interest for late filing or late payment, because they are sort of defining Late a bit differently.
