IRS Provides Comprehensive Relief to Taxpayers | Bennett Thrasher Skip to main content

On April 9, 2020 the IRS issued Notice 2020-23 which significantly broadens its relief to taxpayers in response to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. All taxpayers with a federal filing or payment deadline (original or pursuant to a valid extension) on or after April 1, 2020, and before July 15, 2020, have until July 15, 2020 to file the returns and make payments without penalties or interest.
