Tax Day Delay Makes Accountants Rip Up Their Calendars

Many tax professionals plan their entire years around this upcoming Wednesday, April 15—also known as Tax Day. But things will be different this year. The IRS has delayed the filing and payment deadlines for federal taxes by three months to give tax payers and tax preparers more time to deal with the fallout from the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. And while this extra time was certainly welcomed, it does mean that this filing season will be unlike nearly any other most CPAS have experienced. On this episode of Talking Tax, we talk to Ed Karl, vice president at the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants, about what this sudden schedule change means for tax preparers. (Note: This interview with Karl was recorded on April 8, before the IRS moved back many of its filing deadlines for things like trusts and estates.)
