The IRS is making efforts to take some pressure off taxpayers during the COVID 19 pandemic. By now, most taxpayers are aware that the filing of their 2019 Form 1040, and the payment of the tax relating to that Form, are not due until July 15, 2020. This was a good first step for the IRS. Since then, the IRS issued News Release IR-2020-59 notifying taxpayers with outstanding tax obligations of extensions for dealing with some of these obligations and explaining relief for those involved in installment agreements and negotiating an Offer in Compromise. If you have questions about how the COVID-19 situation is impacting the IRS and its communications with you, please review the IRS News Release IR-2020-59. If you have additional questions, please feel free to contact me.
