April 15 Tax Deadline Moved To July 15 & CARES Act

March 28, 2020 | By: Robert A. Green, CPA

The IRS moved the April 15 tax deadline to July 15, 2020, thereby postponing tax filings and tax payments. Most states also delayed the tax deadline.

Usually, a TTS trader must submit a 2020 Section 475 election by April 15, 2020. Will the IRS accept a 2020 Section 475 election made by the postponed July 15 deadline?

The new CARES Act includes significant economic aid and tax relief provisions. If you have NOLs from business activities in 2018, 2019, and 2020, CARES allows five-year NOL carrybacks for immediate tax relief. TCJA had repealed NOL carrybacks and only allowed carryforwards. Traders, eligible for trader tax status (TTS), might have NOLs from trading expenses and Section 475 ordinary losses. With NOL carrybacks allowed for 2020, it makes a 475 election essential if you have YTD losses.

Thanks Rachel (Ellis CPA).  You are a pleasure to work with….a real pro!  When I was in the Pentagon, the absolute best compliment I could ever give one of my people is Bravo Zulu.  In the Navy, it means We’ll Done. Thanks for all you do.
