Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin announced March 20 the deadline to file federal taxes has been moved from April 15 to that same date in July, to give taxpayers more time to submit their financial documents. Mnuchin said President Donald Trump ordered the change.
“All taxpayers and businesses will have this additional time to file and make payments without interest or penalties,” he said. “I encourage all taxpayers who may have tax refunds to file now to get your money.”
