Americans will have three additional months to complete their tax returns. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin announced Friday the tax deadline is now July 15 instead of April 15.
The deadline delay comes as millions of Americans are self-isolating themselves due to the ongoing COVID-19.
This the second deadline day due to the outbreak.
According to a tweet posted by Mnuchin, the decision was last ordered by President Donald Trump.
At @realDonaldTrump’s direction, we are moving Tax Day from April 15 to July 15. All taxpayers and businesses will have this additional time to file and make payments without interest or penalties.
