The Internal Revenue Service posted Filing and Payment Deadline Questions and Answers The Q&As address the federal filing and payment extensions to July 15th due to the COVID-19 (coronavirus) outbreak. They also include information on the additional extension to Oct. 15th, first quarter estimated tax payments, IRAs and HSAs. For those questions that are not addressed in the Q&As, please know we are working hard to provide answers as quickly as possible.
We also have a new IRS.gov page on mission-critical functions of the IRS and provides an overview of changes related to IRS operations and guidance for taxpayers during this period.
We will continue to monitor issues related to the COVID-19 outbreak, and post updates on our special coronavirus page at IRS.gov/coronavirus.
