Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin announced on Twitter this morning that the April 15 tax filing deadline has been extended to July 15 due to the health crisis caused by the coronavirus outbreak.   All taxpayers (both individuals and businesses) will have extra time to file and pay their taxes without being subject to penalties and interest.

Earlier this week, Treasury announced that tax payments could be deferred until July 15, 2020, without interest or penalty, but that the April 15 deadline would remain in place.
