Internal Revenue Service (IRS)
The Treasury Department and IRS just announced a three-month delay for any tax payments owed up to $1 million. You'll still need to file your returns by April 15, 2020, but will have until July 15 to pay. This will apply to individual tax returns but should also cover many pass-through entities and small businesses. For more information, please visit the IRS Coronavirus Tax Relief website.
