Individual Tax Due Date Changes & American Rescue Plan Update
On Wednesday, the Treasury Department and Internal Revenue Service moved the tax year 2020 individual income tax filing date from April 15, 2021 to May 17, 2021. This change is automatic and requires no additional filing. Individuals can delay paying their federal income taxes for the 2020 tax year until May 17, 2021 and avoid penalties and interest. First quarter estimated tax payments for 2021 are still due April 15, 2021. As of today, the due date for Iowa individual income tax returns remains at April 30, 2021.
