The global COVID-19 pandemic is affecting the economies of almost all countries including the United States. The IRS understands the impact of the global crisis on individuals and companies which is why it is helping taxpayers with different tax issues to get over these hard times. If you are facing tax issues and looking for IRS tax relief, it is advisable to consult an IRS tax attorney. The Treasury and IRS are working closely with the government to provide relief to the American people. Continuing on the topic, in this blog post, we present some important info for taxpayers during the COVID-19 crisis. Take a look.

Filing Date

Keeping the global pandemic in mind, the Treasury Department and IRS (Internal Revenue Service) have extended the federal income tax filing due date to July 15, 2020, from April 15, 2020. Taxpayers can now defer income tax payments till July 15, 2020, without attracting interest and penalties, regardless of how much they owe.

There is no need for taxpayers to fill any additional forms or call the IRS to qualify for automatic federal tax filing and payment relief. Individuals who can’t file taxes within the given time have to fill Form 4868 to request a filing extension and businesses need to fill Form 7004. It is advisable to consult an IRS tax attorney for help if you are unsure as to how you can proceed.

Economic Impact Payments

Economic Impact Payment is the stimulus payment authorized under the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (CARES Act). It is an automatic payment for most taxpayers who have filed their returns for 2018 and 2019, mostly retirees and seniors. If you are eligible, you can use the IRS Help Tool to figure out how to get your payment. There are two types of taxpayers that can benefit from economic impact payments. They are:


If you have filed the tax returns for the year 2018 and 2019, you just need to download the “Get My Payment” application. Enter your bank account details and confirm your payment type to get the money directly credited into your account. If you have an updated bank account or mailing address, you can use “Get My Payment” option to provide details of where to send the direct deposit.

If you are a non-filer, you can navigate to the “Non-Filers: Enter Your Payment Info Here” option to provide the information needed to get the payment. You can use this route only if your gross income is less than $12,200 ($24,400 for married couples) and you didn’t file a 2018 and 2019 federal tax return or you weren’t required to do so due to some other reasons. You don’t need to use this application if you have received any of the following benefits before:

  • Railroad Retirement and Survivor Benefits
  • Recipients of Veterans Affairs benefits
  • Survivor benefits, Supplemental Security Income (SSI)
  • Social Security retirement, disability (SSDI)

People in this group can claim a $500 payment per child if they have a qualifying child under age 17.

I would like to thank Mr. Nick and his staff for the superb help that I received from them. My IRS problem was resolved quickly and efficiently. It took 2 visits to convince me that I was over my head. I thought that I could call the IRS, appeal my tax notices and settle on a payment plan on my own. After many phone calls to the IRS, waiting sometimes more than 4 hours with no resolution to speak of, it proved to be extremely difficult and stressful. Revisiting Mr. Nick was a huge wake up call. My account was reviewed, and a payment plan was established with the IRS within a week. I will be forever grateful to the staff who worked on my case and especially to Lorna who listened to me vent while going through this painful process.

I cannot say enough good things about Nick and his team. When I first met with Nick he was up front, honest, friendly and efficient. When I worked with one of his attorneys, Eric B, I was just as pleased. All of the staff there are nice and very helpful. I wish I hadn't waited so long to get help with my issue. Over 6yrs I tried getting through and getting anywhere with the IRS and hardly made any progress. I know this may not be the case for all, and even I thought it would take longer than it did, but 3mos and they had my situation straightened out. I still can't believe it. Thank you thank you THANK YOU for all that you did for me. This is a huge burden gone out of my life now thanks to you. If anyone needs help out there, I know you may not want to shell out more money to get their help but it may just save you in the long run.

During a time in which competent, professional service at a fair price seems to have disappeared, Mr. Nemeth and his team are a refreshing breath of fresh air.From my first phone call to the final settlement of our case with a non-responsive IRS, they under-promised, over-delivered and were in constant courteous contact to make sure we knew exactly what was happening and where we stood.I hope to never need their services again, but, should I receive another friendly letter from the IRS...I know who to call!
