There was a lot of confusion surrounding yesterday’s Secretary of Treasury announcement, as many news sources were reporting that the tax filing deadline was extended. Please note that this is not correct. The tax filing deadline remains the same, April 15, 2020. However, the payment deadline has been extended to July 15, 2020. You may request a filing extension if needed, but the IRS and Treasury Department are advising you to file on time if you can.
Rhode Island has not followed the federal extension of the April 15, 2020 deadline to July 15, 2020.
