IRS Poised to Push Tax Deadline Back to May 17

WASHINGTON – The Internal Revenue Service is poised to give Americans extra time to file their taxes as a result of the pandemic, according to a published report.

Instead of the usual April 15 deadline, filers will have until May 17.

The development was first reported by The New York Times.

The additional month is intended to ease the burden on filers dealing with the economic upheaval caused by the pandemic, which has put millions out of work or cut back their hours.

The one-month delay is not as much extra time as the I.R.S. offered last year, when the filing deadline was pushed to July 15.

The agency said it will be announcing additional details in the coming days on its website.
