Summertime is also Tax Time
The extension was nice while it lasted, but the Treasury Department and the Internal Revenue Service expect your 2019 tax return to be in the mail by July 15, as the reprieve from filing last year’s taxes officially comes to an end.
The unique tax filing and payment relief for individuals and businesses was in response to the COVID-19 outbreak, and it also applies to filing state of Michigan taxes. For more on Michigan rules and regulations click here.
Need even more time?
If you need even more time to file your federal return, you can ask for an extension, but read the rules carefully. The IRS website states:
- An extension of time to file your return does not grant you any extension of time to pay your taxes.
- You should estimate and pay any owed taxes by your regular deadline to help avoid possible penalties.
- You must file your extension request no later than the regular due date of your return.
Individual tax filers can use Free File to electronically request an automatic tax-filing extension.
Stay connected to your return
The IRS has updated IRS2Go, a smartphone application that lets you interact with the IRS. According to the IRS website, the app will help you:
- Get your refund status
- Make a payment
- Find free tax preparation assistance
- Stay connected with the IRS
