U.S Tax Payment Deadline Changed to July 15, 2020; Tax Return Filing Deadline Still April 15, 2020
The U.S. Department of Treasury and the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) announced that individuals who owe tax as part of the income tax filing process this year can defer payment of those additional taxes until July 15, 2020 without interest or penalties.
This announcement does NOT change the income tax return filing deadline for 2019 income tax returns of April 15, 2020.
International students and scholars should still file their income tax returns by April 15, 2020. Students who are abroad can complete and print their income tax return forms, sign them, and then mail them to the IRS from abroad to the appropriate U.S. filing address by April 15, 2020 (and mail any State income tax returns, to the appropriate State agency by that date as well).
