The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) has extended the deadline for tax-filing to June 15 after winter storms cripple businesses in Texas.
The extension applies to any individual or business in Texas, with taxpayers in other areas of the Midwest also eligible.
The IRS will allow anyone that was included in disaster declarations from the Federal Emergency Management Agency to take advantage of the late filing date.
Taxpayers do not need to contact the IRS to receive the extension if they are within an affected area. Any late fees or due date fees applied will be waived.
This is the second time in two years that the IRS has issued extensions for tax-filing, letting all Americans file later in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
