In an effort to provide relief in light of the COVID-19 outbreak, Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin announced that 90-day tax-free, penalty-free tax deferrals will be allowed as follows:
  • Individuals: Individuals will be able to defer up to $1 million in IRS tax payments. This threshold was determined to allow for pass-through businesses that pay income taxes through their owners' tax returns.
  • Corporations: Corporations will be allowed to defer up to $10 million in tax payments.

This announcement does not delay the April 15 filing deadline and applies to federal taxes only. You can view guidance here.
