IRS Tax Deadlines Changed

IRS TAX FILING & PAYMENT DEADLINE EXTENDED TO JULY 15, 2020  

The Treasury Department and the Internal Revenue Service are providing special tax filing and payment relief to individuals and businesses in response to the COVID-19 Outbreak.  

The income tax filing and payment deadlines for both individual and business returns, with a due date of April 15, 2020, have been extended until July 15, 2020.  The IRS will automatically provide this relief.  Taxpayers do not need to file any additional forms or call the IRS to qualify for this relief.

This relief also includes estimated tax payments for tax year 2020 that are due on April 15, 2020.

Penalties and interest will begin to accrue on any remaining unpaid balances as of July 16, 2020. Individuals and businesses will automatically avoid interest and penalties on the taxes paid by July 15.

At this time, (March 20, 2020) the Wisconsin Department of Revenue has NOT conformed to the Federal extended deadlines.  As such, tax returns (without filing a tax extension) and any balances owed to the state will continue to have a deadline of April 15th.
