July 15th Tax Filing Deadline ApproachingSubmitted by Kaizen Financial Advisors, LLC on June 26th, 2020
Don’t forget taxpayers have until July 15th to file their 1040 form and July 15th is the deadline to pay any federal taxes owed for 2019.
You’ve had three additional months to make a 2019 IRA or HSA contribution. Take note if you still need to make your contribution. Ordinarily, your deadline would have been April 15th, 2020, but just as the federal income tax filing deadline has been pushed forward to July 15th, so has this deadline.1
The extended tax deadline still falls on October 15th. This year, the 6-month extension is now a 3-month extension. If you owe federal taxes, you must still pay them by July 15th.2
The July 15th deadline also applies to fiscal year filers and many businesses. It applies to any individual or business entity that would normally have to file or pay by April 15th.2
How about those who pay quarterly taxes? On April 9th, the I.R.S. set a new July 15th deadline for both first-quarter and second-quarter estimated tax payments. The Q3 and Q4 estimated tax deadlines remain set at September 15th, 2020 and January 15th, 2021, respectively.3
The July 15th deadline also applies for gift taxes. While the federal estate tax deadline fell on April 15th, Forms 709 (the Gift and Generation-Skipping Transfer Tax Return) and related payments are not due until July 15th. An extension to file as late as October 15th is permitted; though, gift and GST taxes owed will still be due on or before July 15th.4
