IRS pushes back Dec. 5 deadlines to Dec. 6


Taxpayers have an extra day, until Thursday, Dec. 6, to file any return or pay any tax originally due on Wednesday, Dec. 5.

The IRS granted the extra time following the Dec. 1 Executive Order closing all federal agencies on Dec. 5 to mark the funeral of George H. W. Bush, the 41st president of the United States.

The one-day extension applies to any return required to be filed with the IRS on Wednesday, Dec. 5, as well as to any required federal tax payment originally due on that day.

It also applies to any federal income, payroll or excise tax deposit due Dec. 5, including those required to be made through the Treasury Department’s Electronic Federal Tax Payment System.
