Simplified Tax Payment Deadlines Legislation Being Discussed

Representatives Bradley Schneider, D-Illinois, and Debbie Lesko, R-Arizona have introduced bi-partisan legislation that would change quarterly tax installment payment deadlines to the Internal Revenue Service by small businesses, estates, trusts, and those individual taxpayers who are gig economy and self-employed workers.  

“American taxpayers need lawmakers to fight for them in Washington,” Schneider said in a statement. “For too long, the IRS has made paying taxes complicated and burdensome.” Currently tax deadlines are set at uneven intervals that don’t coincide with calendar year quarters.  Deadline dates are expected to change to January 15. April 15, July 15, and October 15.  

Edward Karl, AICPA vice president of taxation, stated on Wednesday, “The current structure can be confusing and can easily result in unintended mistakes — changing the dates as proposed in this bill is a commonsense approach that will allow for the flow of more accurate information to taxpayers.”
