The IRS has extended the tax deadline for 2020 by three months, which means you can file and pay your federal income taxes until July 15 this year. However, depending on your financial situation, the tax filing deadline isn't the only date you need to remember. Read on for every important tax due date you need to know for 2020.
When Is the Deadline to File Taxes?
July 15 is the most important tax deadline to know for the average American worker in 2020. Called Tax Day, that's when income tax returns and tax payments are due. If you won't be able to file your taxes by that date, know that it also serves as the deadline to request a tax-filing extension.
If you do file an extension, the other most important tax date to keep in mind is October 15. It's the tax extension deadline, so that'll be when your return is due.
