Tax Deadlines for Individuals

Updated: May 6

The IRS needs WHAT? When?

Most Individuals are required to file a personal tax return using Form 1040, and this includes business owners who run a pass-through business structure. The income produced by your corporation, partnership, or other business entity may generate income that is posted to your personal tax return


If you are unsure if you or a family member needs to file taxes, you can confirm it through the IRS App. Click here to view the app.


Generally, as long as you don't have a type of income that requires you to file a return for other reasons, like self-employment income, generally you don't need to file a return as long as your income is less than your standard deduction.


For example, in 2019, you don't need to file a tax return if you all the following are true:

  • Under age 65

  • Single

  • Do not have any other reasons that require you to file (Such as: self-employment income)

  • Earn less than $12,200 - the 2019 standard deduction for a single taxpayer

January 15, 2020

If you make estimated tax payments on your individual business earnings, the deadline for 4th quarter estimated tax payments for 2019 is January 15, 2020.


April 15th, 2020

Individuals must file the 2019 income tax return and pay any remaining tax liability by this date. You can request more time to file your tax return by completing IRS Form 4868, but your tax liability is still due by April 15th.

If you must make 2019 estimated tax payments for your personal taxes, payment for the 1st quarter of 2019 is due on April 15th, 2019.


June 17th, 2019

If you must make 2019 estimated tax payments for your personal taxes, payment for the 2nd quarter of 2019 is due on June 17th, 2019.


September 16th, 2019

If you must make 2019 estimated tax payments for your personal taxes, payment for the 3rd quarter of 2019 is due on September 16th, 2019.


October 15th, 2020

If you were granted an extension of time by filing Form 4868, your tax return is due on this date.
