Due to the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) outbreak, the United States has delayed tax filing for 90 days. What does that mean for you, the tax filer?

Tax Filings Were Just Delayed 90 Days... What That Means For Tax Filers

Under normal conditions, the tax payment deadline for U.S. tax filers is April 15th. However, under this change, the payments will now be due on July 15th. This is good for tax filers who need money in their pocket now to pay bills or extra time to earn enough to cover their tax bill.

All tax filers must still file their taxes by July 15th. A previous version of this article still had the tax filing deadline of April 15th, but that has since been moved to the new date. So that means if you're using TurboTax (currently up to $15 off for filers), Credit Karma Tax (free filing and audit defense), filing through a CPA, or using any other service, you need to complete the work necessary to file by July 15th. If you think you're due a refund, it's better to file early to get your refund sooner.

Details have not been released yet on how this will all work, but we'll update this post when the guidance comes out. For how we're here for you during these turbulent times, check out our blog post on the subject.
