Wyden Statement on Extending Tax Filing Deadline

Senate Finance Committee Chair Ron Wyden, D-Ore., today released the following statement on the IRS extending the tax filing deadline:

“This filing season has been particularly challenging for low-income taxpayers and small tax preparers as they navigate the pandemic, and I support extending the filing deadline for individuals to May 17. With Democrats enacting tax forgiveness for jobless benefits, which tens of millions of Americans received in 2020, one additional month to file is especially important for workers and their families.”
