IRS extends additional tax deadlines for individuals to May 17

March 29, 2021

The IRS issued Notice 2021-21, stating that individuals now have until May 17, 2021, to meet additional deadlines such as making IRA contributions and filing certain claims for refund.

Following previous guidance from the IRS extending the tax filing due date for individuals for the 2020 tax year from April 15, 2021, to May 17, 2021, NSA wrote a letter to the IRS and Treasury recommending that all payments and returns with an April 15, 2021, deadline be postponed. 
Additionally, in separate correspondence, NSA expressly asked the IRS for clarification of the postponement of 2020 contribution deadlines for IRAs and HSAs.

While Notice 2021-21 extends the time to make 2020 contributions to IRAs, Roth IRAs, HSAs, Archer MSAs, and Coverdell ESAs to May 17, 2021, it does not offer an extension on first-quarter estimated tax payments.
