- For US individuals and corporations with April 15, 2020 tax deadlines, the date has been extended to July 15, 2020
- Taxpayers can also defer federal income tax payments due on April 15, 2020, to July 15, 2020, without penalties and interest, regardless of the amount owed
- US expatriates will see their deadline extended by a month from June 15, 2020 to July 15, 2020
