Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin announced on Twitter that President Trump directed him to move the federal income tax filing deadline from April 15 to July 15.
"All taxpayers and businesses will have this additional time to file and make payments without interest or penalties," he said.
California's Franchise Tax Board had announced Wednesday that it was postponing its deadline to July 15.
Mnuchin urged anyone who might have a refund coming their way to file now to get their money sooner.
