Coronavirus Tax Relief:

The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) is taking steps to help American taxpayers during the global COVID-19 pandemic.  Please visit the IRS website to learn more about coronavirus tax relief, the extension of the tax filing deadline, and the economic impact payment.

IRS warns about COVID-19 related scams:

The Internal Revenue Service today urged taxpayers to be on the lookout for a surge of calls and email phishing attempts about the Coronavirus, or COVID-19. These contacts can lead to tax-related fraud and identity theft.  Taxpayers should watch not only for emails but text messages, websites and social media attempts that request money or personal information.  The IRS will not contact taxpayers directly regarding the economic impact payment and will never ask for personal information over the phone or email.  For more information, please see the IRS website here.

Actions to Take:

  • Visit www.irs.gov for more information regarding coronavirus tax relief
  • Consult the CDC website for the most up-to-date information.
  • For the most recent information on what you can do to reduce your risk of contracting COVID-19 please see the CDC’s latest recommendations.
  • Visit the COVID-19 crisis page on travel.state.gov for the latest information.
  • Check with your airlines or cruise lines regarding any updated information about your travel plans and/or restrictions.
