Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said on Tuesday March 17th, that taxpayers can delay paying their income taxes on as much as $1 million in taxes owed for up to 90 days.
Ordinarily, individual income taxpayers must submit their 2019 tax returns and pay amounts owed by April 15.
The postponement on payments applies to federal returns. Double-check your state’s tax deadlines to see if there are any delays.

Taxpayers will get a three-month reprieve to pay the income taxes they owe for 2019, Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said on Tuesday at a press conference.
As part of its coronavirus response, the federal government will give filers 90 days to pay income taxes due on up to $1 million in tax owed, Mnuchin said in Washington. The reprieve on that amount would cover many pass-through entities and small businesses, he said.
Corporate filers would get the same length of time to pay amounts due on up to $10 million in taxes owed, Mnuchin said.
During that three-month deferral period, taxpayers won’t be subject to interest and penalties, he said.
You should still get your 2019 income tax return in to the federal government as soon as possible, especially if you’re due a refund and need cash.
“We encourage those Americans who can file their taxes to continue to file their taxes on April 15,” Mnuchin said. “Because for many Americans, you will get tax refunds.”
Indeed, the IRS processed more than 65 million income tax returns as of March 6. Of these, 52.7 million filers received tax refunds, averaging $3,012, according to the IRS.
While the federal government is granting taxpayers a little more time, you should still check in on your state’s position.
Some states have rolled out delays due to coronavirus.
For instance, California is granting a 60-day delay for affected individuals and businesses unable to file on time.
Meanwhile, Maryland is giving additional time for certain business tax returns, and the state will grant an extension to individuals if the federal government moves forward on its delay.

Ultimately, you as the taxpayer — and not your accountant — are responsible for filing and paying your taxes.
