IRS is behind due to COVID-19
Due to COVID-19, the IRS is behind in processing their mail. If you have sent a check to the IRS and it has not cleared your bank, do not worry. Do not send another check or cancel the payment. The IRS credits payments based on the postmark date, not on the date the payment is processed, so you do not need to worry about penalties if they have not processed your payment yet. Along with payments, tax returns and correspondence from taxpayers with paper checks are backlogged. The IRS is also giving relief to those who received bad check penalties for dishonored checks received between March 1 and July 15. Please contact us if you have any questions.
