Federal Extensions

The IRS has issued various notices in the last several weeks providing for postponements of tax return filings and tax payments.  On April 9, the IRS issued Notice 2020-23, which provides additional clarification and postponements.  Under Notice 2020-23, nearly all federal tax returns and tax payments due on or after April 1, 2020, and by July 14, 2020, are now automatically postponed until July 15, 2020.  This includes, but is not limited to, individual income tax returns, corporate income tax returns, partnership returns, fiduciary income tax returns for trusts and estates, estate and generation-skipping transfer tax returns, and gift and generation-skipping transfer tax returns, and all tax payments related to those returns.

Quarterly estimated tax payments normally due between April 1, 2020, and July 14, 2020, are also postponed until July 15, 2020.

No penalties or interest will apply to the postponed taxes, so long as they are paid by July 15, 2020.
