Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin announced Friday that the administration has moved the IRS deadline for filing taxes from April 15 to July 15 due to the disruption caused by the coronavirus.
The new deadline will give millions of taxpayers more time to fill out their tax forms as the virus upends daily life across the country. Mnuchin made the announcement on Twitter, citing President Trump’s directive.
“At @realDonaldTrump ’s direction, we are moving Tax Day from April 15 to July 15,” Mnuchin said. “All taxpayers and businesses will have this additional time to file and make payments without interest or penalties.”
