(The Center Square) – Americans and New York State residents are being given a three-month extension on their tax filing deadline because of the coronavirus pandemic.
"We are moving Tax Day from April 15 to July 15," U.S. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin tweeted. "All taxpayers and businesses will have this additional time to file and make payments without interest or penalties."
Mnuchin said Americans expecting refunds can still file now.
"I encourage all taxpayers who may have tax refunds to file now to get your money," he wrote.
The delay is available to individuals or families who owe $1 million or less and corporations that owe $10 million or less.
Following on the federal announcement, New York State announced it, too, is extending the tax filing deadline to July 15 along with federal deadline.
