(FOX BUSINESS) – The U.S. is extending the deadline for filing taxes from April 15 to July 15, Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said in a tweet on Friday.
The decision gives Americans three months longer than they typically would to file their taxes.
“At @realDonaldTrump’s direction, we are moving Tax Day from April 15 to July 15,” Mnuchin tweeted. “All taxpayers and businesses will have this additional time to file and make payments without interest or penalties.”
Earlier this week, the Internal Revenue Service said individuals could defer payments of up to $1 million until July 15, but had left the April 15 filing deadline in place.
