the staff of the Ridgewood blog

The Treasury Department and the Internal Revenue Service are providing special payment relief to individuals and businesses in response to the COVID-19 Outbreak. The filing deadline for tax returns remains April 15, 2020. The IRS urges taxpayers who are owed a refund to file as quickly as possible. For those who can’t file by the April 15, 2020 deadline, the IRS reminds individual taxpayers that everyone is eligible to request a six-month extension to file their return.

This payment relief includes:

Individuals: Income tax payment deadlines for individual returns, with a due date of April 15, 2020, are being automatically extended until July 15, 2020, for up to $1 million of their 2019 tax due. This payment relief applies to all individual returns, including self-employed individuals, and all entities other than C-Corporations, such as trusts or estates. IRS will automatically provide this relief to taxpayers. Taxpayers do not need to file any additional forms or call the IRS to qualify for this relief.

Corporations: For C Corporations, income tax payment deadlines are being automatically extended until July 15, 2020, for up to $10 million of their 2019 tax due.

This relief also includes estimated tax payments for tax year 2020 that are due on April 15, 2020.

Penalties and interest will begin to accrue on any remaining unpaid balances as of July 16, 2020. If you file your tax return or request an extension of time to file by April 15, 2020, you will automatically avoid interest and penalties on the taxes paid by July 15.

The IRS reminds individual taxpayers the easiest and fastest way to request a filing extension is to electronically file Form 4868 through their tax professional, tax software or using the Free File link on Businesses must file Form 7004.

This relief only applies to federal income tax (including tax on self-employment income) payments otherwise due April 15, 2020, not state tax payments or deposits or payments of any other type of federal tax. Taxpayers also will need to file income tax returns in 42 states plus the District of Columbia. State filing and payment deadlines vary and are not always the same as the federal filing deadline. The IRS urges taxpayers to check with their state tax agencies for those details. More information is available at

  1. How about local property taxes , county and state taxes ?

  2. Naw, the 52 year old retired firefighters and cops need their full pensions and subsidized platinum health care (with $5 viagra copays) so they can get busy self isolating.

  3. Naw, we need to pay for all of the OT the RPD and RFD will be billing Villagers for to do their jobs policing the curfew and taking late night target practice at their private firing range. They probably also need some more new SUVs with blacked out windows, too, so we can’t see them sexting with underage girls at home like Guido Pete.

  4. Naw, they need to build the garagezilla, and tear down the old Elks HQ to build a new $5 million HQ (inviting them purchase price) for the Ridgewood Police Department in a sweetheart deal promised by former Mayor Knudsen. Yet another property off the property tax tolls.

  5. Naw, they have a $7.2 million unfunded liability for payouts on unused sick leave at retirement Police & Fire even though public safety salaries, pensions, healthcare and vacation leave benefits already account for 66% of the proposed 2020 Village budget, up from 60% just five years ago. These contractual obligations will be well over 70% of the village budget in the next few years, crowding out all other spending to satisfy the insatiable avarice of the police & fire unions.

  6. This is outrageous. The IRS should have extended the filing deadline long ago. The country is in an unprecedented state of siege and stress is increasing daily.

  7. Has the due date for our Ridgewood property taxes been extended?

    1. this is only Federal income tax payments

  8. Can I pay my Ridgewood property taxes for May in July?

  9. There has been no announcement about any extension of the May 1 property tax payment deadline. It’s still due unless and until the village says it isn’t.

  10. “this is only Federal income tax payments”
    Is NJ income tax filing delayed as well?

    1. yes the filing date has also been pushed back for Federal

  11. To the constant complainer about Police and Fire, take a hike no one cares what you say.
