Article

Due to the current health crisis, the deadlines to FILE and PAY California state and federal taxes have been extended until July 15, 2020.

Do I have to do anything to get this extension?

Nope. The extension is automatic.

What about my tax refund?

Both the state and the IRS are processing refunds. The sooner you file your taxes, the sooner your refund will be processed.
