IRS won’t extend tax filing deadline beyond July 15

The Internal Revenue Service won’t further delay the tax filing and payment deadline past July 15, despite requests to do so, the agency said.

The IRS had previously extended the April 15 tax for three months to give taxpayers more time amid the coronavirus pandemic.

The IRS said taxpayers could request automatic extensions to file their paperwork by Oct. 15, a continuance available every year. But taxpayers who owe money to the government must pay by July 15 or face interest and penalties.

“The IRS understands that those affected by the coronavirus may not be able to pay their balances in full by July 15, but we have many payment options to help taxpayers,” IRS Commissioner Chuck Rettig said in a statement. “These easy-to-use payment options are available on, and most can be done automatically without reaching out to an IRS representative.”
