Treasury Sec. Steve Mnuchin said Friday that the IRS is moving the tax filing deadline from April 15 to July 15.
Mnuchin made the announcement on Twitter, saying the move came at the direction of President Donald Trump.
"All taxpayers and businesses will have this additional time to file and make payments without interest or penalties," Mnuchin said.
At @realDonaldTrump’s direction, we are moving Tax Day from April 15 to July 15. All taxpayers and businesses will have this additional time to file and make payments without interest or penalties.
