The deadline to file federal and Minnesota income taxes has been extended to July 15.

Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin tweeted Friday that Tax Day will be pushed back from April 15 to July 15 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Later, Governor Tim Walz announced plans for Minnesota to follow suit. The state's extension still has to be approved by the IRS. Wisconsin announced Saturday that their state tax deadline will officially be extended to July 15. Michigan has not made an announcement to extend as of Saturday afternoon.

Community Action Duluth remains open as a resource for free tax assistance. Tax site supervisor Zayla Asquith-Heinz said, "This is really great news for everyone because I know it’s hard to get out of your house right now, hard to especially come in here and get your taxes done with us. We know that this whole situation is hitting people pretty hard.”

Walz said in his announcement that Minnesotans are still encouraged to file as soon as they are able.
