On Friday, March 20, 2020, the IRS issued Notice 2020-18 backing Treasury Secretary Mnuchin’s earlier announcement that the due date for income tax returns normally due on April 15th will be moved to July 15th. The Notice provides for an automatic postponement of time to file federal income tax returns and to postpone income tax payments that are due on April 15, 2020 to the July 15, 2020 date. This means that an extension is not required to be filed and the postponement is applicable to all taxpayers, whether or not there is a balance due. One of the biggest changes from the previously issued Notice 2020-17 is that there are no limitations on the amount of payments that can be postponed...

Consistent with our expectations, the IRS released Notice 2020-17 on March 18, 2020 outlining the much-anticipated 90-day extension of time to make federal income tax payments.  For certain federal income tax payments that are normally due on April 15th, 2020, taxpayers now have until July 15th, 2020 to make the payment.   This guidance is NOT an extension of time to file –taxpayers will still need to file their tax return or file for an extension by April 15.
