According to the guidance, on March 13, 2020, the President of the United States issued an emergency declaration under the Robert T. Stafford Disaster Relief and Emergency Assistance Act in response to the ongoing Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic (Emergency Declaration). The Emergency Declaration instructed the Secretary of the Treasury “to provide relief from tax deadlines to Americans who have been adversely affected by the COVID-19 emergency, as appropriate, pursuant to 26 USC. 7508A(a).”
As a result, the Treasury has announced that the due date for filing federal income tax returns AND making federal income tax payments is automatically postponed to July 15, 2020. You do not have to file for an extension.
