March 17, 2021

U.S. Rep. Jamie B. Raskin (D-Md.) is spearheading an effort to get the IRS to extend the deadline for Americans to file their 2020 federal taxes by three months. Raskin and Rep. Bill Pascrell Jr. (D-N.J.) have authored a letter to IRS Commissioner Charles P. Rettig and Mark J. Mazur, acting assistant Treasury secretary for Tax Policy, urging them to extend the traditional April 15 filing deadline until July 15. Last year, as the COVID-19 pandemic was raging, the federal government and the Maryland government extended their tax deadline by three months.
