On January 27, 2021, the Pennsylvania House of Representatives introduced a Resolution insisting that the United States Treasury Department and the Internal Revenue Service extend the deadline for all taxpayers who file and pay their 2020 Federal income taxes on April 15, 2021.
The Resolution acknowledges that on March 20, 2020, the United States Treasury Department and the Internal Revenue Service extended the tax filing deadline, from April 15 to July 15, due to COVID-19. The Resolution insists that the same circumstances exist for the Federal government to extend the tax filing deadline again for 2021.
While only a mere formality, the Resolution ultimately maintains that extending the deadline will help prevent the spread of COVID-19 and allow the time necessary to distribute the COVID-19 vaccine.
