(CNBC) -- Taxpayers will have more time to get their taxes in order this year.
The IRS is planning to push back the deadline for filing tax returns by about one month, originally thought to be May 15, from the usual April 15, CNBC confirmed. But because May 15 falls on a Saturday, the final deadline for filers is likely to be the following Monday, May 17. The IRS and Treasury didn’t respond to a request for comment on the extension or the exact filing date.
This will give taxpayers additional time to file their 2020 tax returns and pay any amounts owed to the IRS.
