As we continue to address the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19) in Michigan and across the country, I want to keep you updated about the resources available to you and the actions being taken at the federal level that may benefit you during this difficult time.
Yesterday, the IRS announced that for most Americans, the deadline to pay federal income taxes will be delayed until July 15. You can read the announcement here. Remember: You still must file your return (or file for an extension) by April 15, as usual. But if you are an individual that owes less than $1 million, or a corporation that owes less than $10 million, you can delay tax payment until July 15.
If disruptions from COVID-19 prevent you from filing by April 15, you may apply for an automatic six-month extension for any reason, just like every year. You can learn more about applying for a filing extension here.
The IRS has also created a page dedicated to outlining their efforts to help taxpayers, businesses, and others affected by the coronavirus. You can visit this page, which will be updated as new information becomes available, here.
My staff and I will continue to work with officials at every level of government to ensure that everyone in Michigan is protected and well informed. If you have further questions, please feel free to reach out to my office at (517) 993-0510 for more information.
