There are efforts by the AICPA and other groups to urge the IRS to also extend the due date for 1st quarter estimated tax payments. As indicated in our previous blog, those 1st quarter 2021 estimated tax payments are currently still due on the original due date of April 15, 2021.

We will continue to monitor the status of any further federal extensions and any possible due date extensions in other states -and will provide updates when appropriate.
