ALABAMA — Don’t forget about tax day!
After the federal government pushed back Tax Day, which is normally set for April, citizens are reminded to pay their taxes by Wednesday, July 15. The deadline was moved due to the negative economic situation caused by the coronavirus pandemic.
In a release on Tuesday, the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) announced it would not extend the deadline again with the exception of those requesting automatic extensions through October. Payment plans are also available.
“The IRS understands that those affected by the coronavirus may not be able to pay their balances in full by July 15, but we have many payment options to help taxpayers,” said IRS Commissioner Chuck Rettig. “These easy-to-use payment options are available on IRS.gov, and most can be done automatically without reaching out to an IRS representative.”
