US income tax filing deadline moved back due to coronavirus

The deadline for filing US income taxes has been moved from April 15th to June 15th, according to Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchen.

This is due to the COVID-19 worldwide pandemic. This will allow taxpayers and businesses extra time to file and make payments without fear of facing penalties.

It was announced earlier this week that the administration would delay payments, leaving roughly $300 billion in the economy at this critical time.
Mnuchen encouraged people to “file now to get your money”

This extension only applies to federal returns.
