Taxpayers Owed Refunds Encouraged to File

Although the deadline has been moved from April 15th to July 15th, the IRS encourages taxpayers who will receive a refund to file as soon as possible. Most tax refunds are being issued within 21 days of filing.

“Even with the filing deadline extended, we urge taxpayers who are owed refunds to file as soon as possible and file electronically,” Chuck Rettig, the IRS Commissioner, said. “Filing electronically with direct deposit is the quickest way to get refunds. Although we are curtailing some operations during this period, the IRS is continuing with mission-critical operations to support the nation, and that includes accepting tax returns and sending refunds. As a federal agency vital to the overall operations of our country, we ask for your personal support, your understanding – and your patience. I’m incredibly proud of our employees as we navigate through numerous different challenges in this very rapidly changing environment.”

The IRS has a special coronavirus page on IRS.gov where it will continue to update information on COVID-19: https://bit.ly/390RV5u
