Don't forget! You have until July 15 to file your taxes. Here's what you need to know.

The tax-filing deadline was extended to July from April due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Heads up! You only have a few days left to file your 2019 taxes. 

The tax-filing deadline was extended to July 15 from April 15 due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Taxpayers must file or seek an extension by the new deadline or face a penalty.

If you have yet to file and are uncomfortable with going inside a building, the IRS said it has services on its website that can help and you can file online. The IRS website also has information on requesting an extension or making a payment. 

The fastest way to receive a refund is to file electronically and use direct deposit. There are delays in processing paper tax returns due to limited staffing so this is another reason you should choose to electronically file your taxes.
