A bit of good news amidst the Covid-19 outbreak. Due to the outbreak, the IRS has extended the federal tax filing and payment deadline to July 15, but state tax deadlines vary and might still be April 15 for your state.
Important tax deadline notes
- Federal deadline: Extended to July 15.
- State deadlines: Might still be April 15 for you. Each state is deciding whether and how to update their own tax deadlines.
- States now with July 15 deadline: IA, AL, AZ, CA, CT, CO, DC, IA, IN, LA, MD, MN, MO, MT, NC, NM, OK, PA, SC
- For other others states, we will post updates here, but for now, the American Institute of CPAs is keeping a list.
- Expecting a refund? Filing sooner is better: If you’re expecting a refund, it’s still in your best interest to file ASAP so you can receive your refund. (You can file free online with our partner Credit Karma Tax.)
