Can I get extra time to file my taxes in 2020? 

Yes. Taxpayers will receive  90 extra days to file your return. You will need to file and pay your taxes in full by the July 15th deadline to avoid interest or late payment penalties. 

Can I get extra time to pay my taxes in 2020?  

You now have until July 15, 2020 to pay your federal tax bill for the 2019 tax year. The IRS is granting taxpayers a 90-day payment extension without interest or late payment penalties. If you are unable to pay your tax bill in full on or before the due date, the IRS can assist you with a payment plan. Learn more about IRS payment plans here.    

Did California extend the filing deadline? 

Each state decides if they are going to extend their specific filing deadline. The State of California's Franchise Tax Board extended the filing deadline and payment deadline to July 15, 2020. Read more, here.

Are tax refunds delayed because of coronavirus? 

At this time, refunds are still being processed normally. If you are expecting a refund, you should file your 2019 return as soon as possible. There is no reason to wait for the tax deadline. Filing now will help ensure that you see your funds without any kind of delay. 

You can use the IRS’s “Where’s My Refund?” tool to figure out when your money will arrive.  

When will I receive my stimulus payment?

The federal government is taking immediate steps to implement COVID-19 legislation during this period. The Families First Coronavirus Response Act and other COVID-19 legislation, which includes the stimulus payment, remain under consideration in Congress at this time.


The IRS has not released any information regarding stimulus or payment checks. How to claim the stimulus check and amounts per taxpayer is yet to be determined.
