IRS Extends Tax Payments Deadline – What This Means for You

As everyone is aware, COVID-19 is impacting businesses around the globe. This week, US Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin announced that taxpayers can delay paying their income taxes on as much as $1 million in taxes owed for up to 90 days. Corporations that owe up to $10 million will also be able to delay their payments until July 15th. 

At this time, the April 15th deadline to file has not changed. While several states, including New Jersey, have proposed legislation that follows the Federal extension, there have not been any official changes announced.
