It appears that MN and WI will follow suit with extending the state income tax deadline. We will send out another communication when the details of the Minnesota and Wisconsin filing/payment deadline are finalized.  If you have already scheduled your tax payments for April 15 via automatic withdrawal, you are still able to change the auto-withdrawal date to the new July 15th deadline by contacting the IRS. to cancel the automatic withdrawal, you will need to call the IRS e-file Payment Services 24/7 phone number: 1-888-353-4537. the IRS request taxpayers wait 7-10 after your return has been accepted to call.

There currently is not updated information on any potential changes to the October 15 extension deadline. Those taxpayers unable to file by July 15th, should request an extension of time to file on IRS Form 4868, although we do not know what the tax extension timeline will look like at this point. 2) All Federal income tax payments may be deferred until July 15th, 2020.
