今年报税的期限会推迟吗?

{Scroll down for English}


自从新的刺激法案,American Rescue Plan Act 在两天前由总统签署成为法律后。该法案直接对2020年度的报税表产生了变化,主要的变化有两点:

  1. 2020年收入15万以下的纳税人的失业金的头$10,200($20,400如夫妻双方都有失业金)是免税的。

  2. 在2020年多收了奥巴马医疗保险垫底费的纳税人可以获得免除偿还多收的垫底费。

因为法案刚刚推出,国税局目前需要更新指引、税表和系统。我们现在都不知道国税局在什么时候才能够完成这些工作。


目前国税局真的是够它忙的,尚有积压大约690万份的2019年度税表还没有处理,下周还要执行发出第三轮纾困金$1400。至于税表和系统的更新,真的不知道何时才能够完成。


现在很多人就问,今年报税的期限会推迟吗?


在我看来,应该会推迟,因为更新指引、税表和系统,这些工作需要时间。很可能需要数周时间,那么,等到更新完毕,那已经是接近税季的季末4月15日。


前些日子,众议院税收筹划委员会主席Richard Neal,法律监督小组委员会主席Bill Pascrell,最高共和党议员Kevin Brady,以及全国注册会计师协会,全国税务专业人士协会,AARP。。。等等机构纷纷向国税局局长提出报税期限需要推迟。但到目前为止,国税局未作出回应。


我们密切留意着这方面的消息,如果有新的消息,我们会及时作出更新。目前的报税期限仍然是4月15日。



Will the tax filing deadline be postponed this year?


Since the new stimulus bill, the American Rescue Plan Act was signed into law by the president two days ago. The bill directly changed the tax return for 2020. There are two main changes:

  1. The first $10,200 ($20,400 for husband and wife) of the unemployment benefits of taxpayers whose income is less than 150,000 in 2020 is tax-free.

  2. Taxpayers received too much Obama premium credits in 2020 would not have to pay back the excess.

Because the bill has just been introduced, the IRS currently needs to update its guidelines, tax forms, and systems. We do not know when the IRS will be able to complete these tasks.


At present, the IRS is really busy. There is still a backlog of about 6.9 million tax returns of 2019 that has not yet been processed. Next week, the IRS will be issuing the third round of stimulus check of $1400. As for the update of new tax forms and systems, I really don’t know when it will be completed.


Many people now ask, will the deadline for tax filing this year be postponed?


In my opinion, it should be postponed because it takes time for IRS to update the guidelines, tax forms and systems. It may take several weeks, so when the task is completed, it is already close to April 15th the end of the tax season.


A few days ago, Richard Neal, Chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee; Bill Pascrell, Chairman of the Oversight Subcommittee; Kevin Brady, the Top Republican Congressman; and the National Institute of Certified Public Accountants, the National Association of Tax Professionals, and AARP. . . all these agencies have proposed to the IRS Commissioner that the tax filing deadline needs to be postponed. But so far, the IRS has not responded.


We will pay close attention to this, and if there is any update, we will update it in time. The current tax filing deadline is still April 15.
