Today is Tax Day!
The normal tax day of April 15 was delayed just over a month because of the COVID-19 pandemic. Taxes are due by 11:59:59 p.m. tonight for all residents in the KWTO coverage area for the 2020 tax year.
The IRS says because of a backlog of returns from 2019 and 2020 due to reduced staffing connected to the COVID-19 pandemic, refunds could take longer than usual.
The IRS also says that paper tax returns will take longer to process than electronic returns, so if taxpayers have a way to transmit their returns electronically it would be to their benefit.
