Filing and Payment Deadlines Questions and Answers | Internal Revenue Service

IRS Notice 2020-18

This notice extended the filing deadline for personal and corporate tax returns until 7/15/20 that were originally due 4/15/20.

This new deadline will give you an automatic extension to file and pay your 2019 income taxes until 7/15/20 with no penalties or interest. You do not need to file a Form 7004 or Form 4868 requesting an extension.

This also applies to the 1st estimated tax payment.

North Carolina has also extended the filing deadlines. NC will waive penalties but NOT interest. Interest will begin 4/16/20 on any income tax originally due on 4/15/20. You can file and pay your tax due in full or make a payment to NC with an extension request by 4/15/20 to avoid interest charges.

CARES Act and Stimulus Package:

The President signed the Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security Act (CARES) on March 27, 2020.

Eligible taxpayers will receive checks for $1200 (single or married filing separate taxpayers), $2400 (joint taxpayers) and $500 for each child under the age of 17.

Stimulus check amounts will start phasing out for taxpayers with AGI over $75,000 single and $150,000 joint.

The IRS will use your 2019 tax information or 2018 tax information, if you have not filed 2019 yet, to determine your qualifying payment amount and if you used direct deposit for a refund check this information will also be used to direct deposit stimulus checks.

These payments will not be taxable and will be reconciled on your 2020 return.
