The IRS announced earlier this month that the federal income tax filing due date for individuals is now May 17, 2021, postponed about month from its traditional April 15 due date.
The federal tax filing postponement only applies to individual federal income tax returns and payments for the 2020 tax filing year. Relief doesn’t apply to estimated self-employment tax payments, which will be due on April 15, 2021 as per usual.
Since states issue separate guidance regarding due date changes, you may still have to file state income taxes, depending on where you live.
