Today, U.S. Senator Ben Sasse, a member of the Senate Finance Committee who pushed the Treasury Department to give taxpayers an automatic 90-day tax extension, issued the following statement after the IRS agreed to officially move the individual tax filing deadline to July 15 given the impact of coronavirus. 

“Great news: Tax day is July 15. Moms, dads, and small businesses have enough to be worried about, but now they can brush the taxman off until July. This is exactly what I called for last week, and I’m glad that President Trump agreed and directed his team to get this done."


Senator Sasse’s original letter to Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin is available here.
