The U.S. government and Trump administration announced they have postponed the April 15 tax payment deadline for millions of individuals, giving taxpayers another 90 days to pay their 2019 income-tax bills as part of a new economic stimulus plan.

The delay will allow those individuals who owe tax payments up to $1 million to be deferred for 90 days. Furthermore, corporations that owe $10 million or less are also able to defer up to $10 million in tax payments for 90 days. The $1 million limit for individuals was established to cover small businesses and pass-through entities.

Refunds will be processed as normal and not affected by this delay.

It is important to note the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) is not extending the filing deadline. Individuals and corporations will still be required to file their return or extension by the tax deadline on April 15, 2020.
