18 Mar April 15 filing deadline extended to May 17 — but not for everyone (03-17-21)
The IRS announced today that it is moving the April 15, 2021, filing deadline to May 17, 2021, for individual taxpayers (including Schedule C filers) only. However, the extension does not apply to estimated tax payments for the first quarter of 2021. These payments are still due April 15, 2021.
Taxpayers do not have to request an extension for the one-month delay, but if returns are not filed by May 17, they must file for an extension by that date.
The March 15 filing deadline for calendar-year partnerships and S corporations was not extended, nor was the April 15 filing deadline for C corporations or trusts.
The FTB has not reported whether or not California will conform.
We will keep you posted as more details are made available.
