2020 is the year of the neverending tax seasons. The original April 15th deadline was pushed to July 15th and now we have enough disasters that the deadline has been extended again for many taxpayers. If you’re wondering whether your clients’ returns are due in two weeks on October 15th or in two to three months, I’ve put together a handy chart for you.

All of this information is available on the IRS’ website and FEMA’s website.
