The U.S. tax filing deadline has been moved to July 15, 2020, according to a tweet today by United States Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin. The extension means Americans will have an additional three months to file their taxes amid the coronavirus pandemic. Mnuchin said the extension was at the direction of U.S. President Donald Trump.
"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 extension also allows unlimited and uncapped tax payment deferral for an extra three months.
The White House had announced previously they were deferring tax payments for 90 days, but that Americans would still need to file by April 15.
