Details and guidance seem to be unfolding hourly.  Today we learned that the Federal government will give taxpayers a three-month extension of time to pay their 2019 taxes.  However, the Feds did not provide a reprieve on the April 15th due date to file your tax returns.

So, what does that mean to you and what approach should you take for completing your 2019 taxes? 

As has always been the case, an extension to file will be available.  Further, while an extension to file has not ever been an extension to pay, taxpayers will now have an additional 90 days to pay their federal taxes.

As part of Governor Newsom’s March 12th Executive Order, California has extended the due date and time to pay by 60 days for individual taxpayers.  Quarterly estimated tax payments normally due on April 15th are now due June 15th.
