The move comes as the coronavirus spreads to all 50 U.S. states.

The deadline for filing tax returns will be postponed three months to July 15 because of the coronavirus outbreak, Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin announced.

The decision comes after widespread complaints over the administration’s previous plan to give people who owed the IRS an additional 90 days to pay, without penalties or interest, yet still required them to file their returns by April 15.

Many called that plan confusing, with lawmakers on both sides urging the administration to synchronize the dates. Senate Republicans unveiled plans yesterday to postpone the filing deadline as part of their stimulus legislation now pending in Congress.
