The U.S. Treasury Department and the IRS announced that the federal income tax filing due date for individuals for the 2020 tax year will be extended from April 15, 2021 to May 17, 2021. The federal tax filing delay to May 17, 2021 only applies to individual federal income tax returns and tax payments.
