Normally, today would be Tax Day: the due date for filing 2019 income tax returns by individuals and calendar year C corporations. It would also be the day for paying any outstanding 2019 taxes due as well as the first installment of 2020 estimated taxes. However, the IRS has provided an automatic extension for filing these returns and paying these taxes until July 15, 2020. If additional time to file is needed, file Form 4868 to get an extension to October 15, 2020. But you don’t get more time to pay 2019 taxes.
