“We encourage Americans who can file taxes to continue to file taxes on April 15 because, for many Americans, you will get tax refunds, and we don’t want you to lose out on those tax refunds.”

“If you owe a payment to the IRS, you can defer up to $1 million as an individual, and $10 million to corporations, interest-free and penalty-free for 90 days. File your taxes, you’ll automatically not get charged interests or penalties.”
