The deadline to file 2019 Income Taxes is Wednesday, July 15th. In April, the Internal Revenue Service extended the traditional April 15th income tax deadline to July 15th in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Starting July 16th, penalties and interest begin to accrue on any unpaid balances. Anyone who needs a little extra time preparing their tax return can file for an automatic extension to extend that deadline to October 15th. However, any owed taxes must be paid by July 15 to avoid penalties and interest. The extension filing form is available from a tax professional, tax software, or from irs.gov. Again, Wednesday, July 15th, is the deadline to file 2019 Income Taxes without accruing penalties and interest. For more about this deadline, go to irs.gov.
