Your taxes: Tax Day is now July 15, 2020

Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, you will now have more time to file and pay your state and federal taxes.

Both the IRS and state revenue departments have extended the DUE DATE for your Tax Year 2019 tax return to July 15, 2020. That is the date that your payment for any income due has to be paid.

Taxpayers do not need to file any additional forms or call the IRS or Kansas Department of Revenue to qualify for this automatic tax filing relief. Individuals who need additional time to file beyond the July 15 deadline, can request a filing extension by filing Form 4868 with their tax professional or online at IRS.Gov. The form for businesses needing addition time is the 7004.

The IRS urges taxpayers who are due a refund to file as soon as possible. Filing electronically is the quickest way to get a refund. The IRS is saying that refunds should be issued within 21 days of electronically filing. The quickest way to get your refund is to have it directly deposited into your bank.
