  • Status of Q1 2020 estimated payments not mentioned

As you have heard the Treasury Department on Tuesday announced some adjustments to the income tax schedule for 2019 taxes.  Note that this is for IRS/federal filing only.  They are:

  • 90 day delay on PAYMENTS for individuals (1040) and c-corps (1120)

  • must still FILE on time (April 15)

  • partnership (1065)/s-corp (1120s) deadline was Monday (Mar 16) so that is not affected

  • so far does NOT apply to Apr 15, 2020 quarterly estimated payments, so get those in

  • if you owe more than $1M or a c-corp owes more than $10M – regular rules apply

STATE filings may follow a different schedule:

  • NEW JERSEY – bill with senate right now to delay payment AND filing deadline to match IRS timing

  • NEW YORK – no change to timing, as of March 16

  • CONNECTICUT – No change yet to individual filings. Partnership/s-corp filing delayed to April 15 and payments to June 15, corp (1120) to June 15

  • CALIFORNIA – filing AND payment deadline pushed to June 15. also applies to filings for partnerships that were due March 16. Q1 2020 estimated payments delayed to June 15

  • other states vary. see daily updates at:
