Tax Deadline Extended to July 15

On Friday March 20th, President Trump has directed, via a tweet,  Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin to move Tax Day to July 15, giving taxpayers more time to file their taxes in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic. Specific details and IRS guidance on the postponed deadlines were not immediately available.

“At @realDonaldTrump’s direction, we are moving Tax Day from April 15 to July 15,” said Mnuchin. “All taxpayers and businesses will have this additional time to file and make payments without interest or penalties.”

Earlier this week, the administration extended the payment deadline to July 15. (Post from March 19, regarding payment deadline extension)

As of Friday morning (March 20), Michigan’s deadline remains April 15, according to a state treasury spokesman. Ron Leix said the state is monitoring “the rapidly changing situation” out of Washington. In order to file your state taxes, you have to know your “adjusted gross income” from your federal return.
