Federal Tax Filing Deadlines 2021: All The New Change Dates Listed

The due date for filing many tax forms has been postponed to July 15, 2021.

This postponement is for:

  • Tax returns with due dates 4/15/2021 – 5/17/2021
  • Filing tax returns
  • Making payments on tax returns

This relief is automatic. You do not have to call the IRS or file any extension forms, and you do not have to send letters or other documents to receive this relief.

That period will be disregarded by the IRS in calculating any interest, penalty, or addition to tax for failure to file the forms specified in the notice

This postponement also includes all attachments or required forms and schedules. This postponement does not change the due dates of extensions.

  • Form 1120-S
