The federal income tax filing due date is extended from April 15, 2020, to July 15, 2020. You also have until July 15 to make any 2020 federal income tax payments, without penalties and interest, regardless of the amount you owe.
This applies to all taxpayers. You don't need to file additional forms or call the IRS to qualify.
If you can't meet the July 15 filing deadline you can request an extension by filing Form 4868 (PDF).
If you're expecting a refund, file as soon as possible, preferably electronically, it's faster, safer, and more accurate.

By law, the IRS cannot issue refunds before mid-February for tax returns that claim the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) or the Additional Child Tax Credit (ACTC).
The IRS expects the earliest EITC/ACTC related refunds to be available in taxpayer bank accounts or on debit cards starting on Feb 27, 2019, if they chose direct deposit and there are no other issues with their tax return.
NOTE: Even though the IRS issues most refunds between 7 and 21 days, some tax returns require additional review and can take longer than 21 days for refunds to be issued.
