JPS Update: IRS 2019 Payment Extension Due to Coronavirus

In response to questions and additional information JPS has received, we’re providing this updated information to  yesterday’s blog  regarding the IRS’s extension of payments due April 15, 2020. 

The payment deferral* appears to be only for tax year 2019. This means that, at this point, 1st quarter 2020 estimated tax payments that are due April 15 will still need to be paid on time to avoid penalties.

We expect the IRS will soon release details about how the payment extension will work. At this time, most states have not yet provided relief similar to the IRS’s. As official announcements are made, JPS will provide further updates.

* Individuals will be able to defer up to $1 million, and certain corporations, including some small businesses, will be able to defer up to $10 million.

Stay updated with JPS regarding your tax & financial positioning. And, as always, feel free to contact your JPS team to assist you.
