IRS Commissioner again says tax season won’t be extended

At a March 3rd virtual tax conference hosted by the Federal Bar Association, IRS Commissioner Charles Rettig again said that IRS has no plans to extend the tax return filing deadline beyond April 15, 2021.

In February 23 testimony before the House Appropriations Committee Financial Services Subcommittee, Commissioner Rettig had said that IRS was not planning to extend the April 15 filing deadline despite requests from several House Democrats. At that time, he also noted that a final decision on the matter hasn’t yet been reached
