Coronavirus recommendations issued by the CDC

Last updated: April 1, 2020

If you are looking for a status on your tax preparation, please understand that we are under the Mayor’s executive order and we are all working remotely. We are still working, but have been delayed by multiple factors including the IRS.  We understand that this may cause a delay in your return, and we apologize for that delay, however, it is beyond our control. If you have a contact person, they are still your contact so please reach out to them with questions that you might have. For any other questions, please email us at office@fordefirm.com, or through the contact page and we will responded to you as quickly as possible.

The Internal Revenue Service is also providing special payment and filing relief to individuals and businesses in response to the COVID-19 Outbreak:

The IRS has automatically extended the filing deadline for all returns that were initially due April 15, 2020 to July 15, 2020. Individual taxpayers will not need file an extension.

Income tax payment deadlines for individual returns, with an original due date of April 15, 2020, are being automatically extended until July 15, 2020, for up to $1 million of their 2019 tax due. This payment relief applies to all individual returns, including self-employed individuals, and all entities other than C-Corporations, such as trusts or estates. IRS will automatically provide this relief to taxpayers. Taxpayers do not need to file any additional forms or call the IRS to qualify for this relief.

Corporations: For C Corporations, income tax payment deadlines are being automatically extended until July 15, 2020, for up to $10 million of their 2019 tax due.

This relief also includes estimated tax payments for tax year 2020 that are due on April 15, 2020.

Penalties and interest will begin to accrue on any remaining unpaid balances as of July 16, 2020. If you file your tax return or request an extension of time to file by April 15, 2020, you will automatically avoid interest and penalties on the taxes paid by July 15.

This relief only applies to federal income tax (including tax on self-employment income) payments otherwise due April 15, 2020, not state tax payments or deposits or payments of any other type of federal tax. Taxpayers also will need to file income tax returns in 42 states plus the District of Columbia. State filing and payment deadlines vary and are not always the same as the federal filing deadline. The IRS urges taxpayers to check with their state tax agencies for those details. More information is available at https://www.taxadmin.org/state-tax-agencies.
