IRS Filing & Payment Deadline Extended to July 15, 2020

As of March 20, 2020, the tax filing and tax payment deadline for 2019 IRS tax returns has been postponed to July 15, 2020. This is automatic - no extension is required.

  • The July 15 deadline applies to federal taxes only. State tax deadlines vary by state.
  • IRA contribution deadlines are tied to "tax filing date" so this decision also extends the opportunity window for 2019 IRA contributions.
  • The HSA contribution deadline is tied to "tax filing date", therefore the 2019 HSA contribution deadline has been extended as well.
