In light of current events and potential financial difficulties caused by the COVID-19 outbreak, the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) has postponed the 2019 federal income tax filing and payment deadline until July 15, 2020.
Those who owe payments up to $1,000,000 as individuals or $10,000,000 as a corporation may claim the 90-day delay in payment without interest or penalties.
The contributions deadline for your Individual Retirement Account (IRA) has also been extended for the same time period.
We recommend that you consult your tax, legal, and accounting professionals before modifying your existing tax strategy. While it is our intention to keep you updated on the most recent information, this is not a replacement for real-life tax advice.
