The IRS announced in Notice 2020-18 and Notice 2020-20 that, due to the Emergency Declaration issued by the President, Treasury is providing tax relief in the form of extending the due date for income tax, gift tax, and GST tax payments (including estimated payments of income taxes and self-employment taxes) due on April 15 until July 15, interest and penalty free. The notices also extend the filing deadline for all income tax, gift tax, and GST tax returns due on April 15 until July 15. These extensions apply to all individuals, corporations, partnerships, trusts and estates. There is no limit on the amount of tax payments that may be deferred.

For information on how these extensions affect certain information returns, see our advisory "Traps for the Unwary: COVID-19 Tax Relief Fails to Extend Certain Foreign Information Return Filing Deadlines."
