Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin announced Friday morning that the IRS has officially moved Tax Day to July 15.
Earlier this week, officials said individuals and businesses would be allowed to delay paying their 2019 tax bills for 90 days past the usual April 15 deadline.
Friday's announcement will give extra time for individuals and businesses to file their taxes and move the filing deadline from April 15 to July 15.
"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," Mnuchin said.
As of Feb. 21, the IRS had issued more than 37.4 million refunds averaging $3,125.
"I encourage all taxpayers who may have tax refunds to file now to get your money," Mnuchin said.
