Tax day is one of those dates that you remember because it’s (almost) always the same, and it always seems to arrive sooner than you’d like. This year, though, it is one of the many constants that had to be changed due to the pandemic. Perhaps because the federal government and the state announced it separately, there has been some confusion about what is due when. Whatever the reason, we are here to reassure everyone that the deadline for filing both state and federal taxes this year is July 15, 2020.
We still recommend not waiting until the last minute, but the July 15th deadline gives taxpayers a grace period of three months to file this year, so there is no need to panic today. And remember: If you owe money on your taxes, you can file anytime now and still delay payment until July 15th.
