WASHINGTON – Americans are getting an extra three months to file their taxes amid the coronavirus Pandemic.
Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin announced tax day is being moved from April 15 to July 15.
Mnuchin said he was acting at the direction of President Trump.
Mnuchin said Americans who are owed refunds should still file now to get their money to help them through these tough economic times.
The new deadline applies only to Federal Tax Income Payments and it’s up to individual states to set their own deadlines. Some states are making changes.
In New York, individuals also have until July 15th to both file and pay their state taxes.
