The IRS announced today, March 17, 2021, that it is planning to delay the April 15 tax filing deadline to May 17, giving taxpayers additional time to file returns and pay any outstanding amounts due.
The announcement comes after calls from accountants and members of Congress to delay the due date as new legislation and pandemic-related work changes disrupt taxpayer plans.
While the extended filing date is welcome news, HHM plans to stay focused on moving forward with preparing and filing tax returns. We encourage our clients to provide information to us as soon as possible to give them the opportunity to experience a smoother tax deadline, however we will work within each client’s preferred timeframe.
We will continue to keep our clients apprised of any updates from the IRS related to the new filing due date.
