​NATP Appeals to IRS Commissioner Rettig to Extend Tax Season

NATP has submitted a letter to IRS Commissioner Charles Rettig in support of an extension of the 2021 tax season. The letter addresses challenges NATP is hearing from its members who are experiencing the reality of navigating tax season amid the current COVID-19 situation.

On behalf of the 23,000 NATP members and their more than 10 million taxpaying clients, it is our belief that a filing and payment extension would be prudent. An extension will significantly help preparers as they continue to wait for filing guidance as well as the many taxpayers who continue to experience health and economic challenges not unlike what was faced during the 2020 tax season

We recently conducted a survey of tax professionals asking their preferred filing deadline for the 2021 tax season. We learned that 71% of respondents support a later filing deadline.
