Federal Tax Day has moved, and not just the payment deadline, but the filing deadline, as well--a change from less than 24 hours ago.
The change is a relief mechanism from the federal government in the wake of the coronavirus epidemic. While taxes continue to be due on July 15, President Donald Trump said during his noon time press conference this will give taxpayers more time to return to normalcy, which includes working, so they can pay.
"We are moving Tax Day from April 15 to July 15," Secretary Steven Mnuchin tweeted. "All taxpayers and businesses will have this additional time to file and make payments without interest or penalties."
The White House had announced previously they were deferring tax payments for 90 days, but Americans would need to file by April 15.
