Electronic Filings of Forms 1097, 1098, 1099, 3921, 3922, and W-2G
File these forms with the IRS by this date. Note that this deadline only applies if you file electronically. Otherwise, see February 28. The due date for providing the recipient with these forms generally remains January 31. For more information, see IRS Publication 1220.

April 15

Individuals
File your 2018 income tax return and pay any tax due. (If you live in Maine or Massachusetts, your deadline is April 17, 2019.) If you need more time to file your return, you can request a tax extension with IRS Form 4868 (Application for Automatic Extension of Time To File U.S. Individual Income Tax Return). Note that an extension only gives you extra time to file, so you should pay what you estimate you owe in tax by the original April deadline to avoid penalties. If you obtain a tax extension, you will have until October 15, 2019 to file your tax return.

If you are not paying your 2019 income tax through withholding (or you will not pay enough tax during the year that way), you should make the first installment payment for your 2019 estimated tax. You can use IRS Form 1040-ES (Estimated Tax for Individuals). For more information, see IRS Publication 505 (Tax Withholding and Estimated Tax).

Household Employers
If you paid cash wages of $2,100 or more to a household employee during 2018, you must file IRS Schedule H (Form 1040)(Household Employment Taxes). If you are required to file an annual income tax return (IRS Form 1040), you should include Schedule H with your return and report any household employment taxes. If you paid total cash wages of $1,000 or more in any calendar quarter of 2017 or 2018 to household employees, you should report any federal unemployment (FUTA) on Schedule H. Additionally, make sure to report any income tax you withheld for your household employees. For more information, see IRS Publication 926 (Household Employer’s Tax Guide).

Corporations
File a 2019 income tax return, IRS Form 1120 (U.S. Corporation Income Tax Return), and pay any tax due. If you need more time to file, you can request a tax extension with IRS Form 7004. Make sure you file your extension and pay what you estimate you owe in taxes by this date to avoid penalties.

Make the first installment payment for 2019 estimated income tax. You can use the worksheet, IRS Form 1120-W (Estimated Tax for Corporations), to help you calculate your estimated tax for the year.

June 2019
June 17

Individuals
If you are a U.S. citizen or resident alien living and working (or on military duty) outside the United States and Puerto Rico, your federal income tax return is due on this date. File IRS Form 1040 and pay any tax due. Otherwise, see April 15. If you need more time to file your tax return, you can use IRS Form 4868 to get a 4-month extension. However, you should still pay what you estimate you owe by this date to avoid penalties. If you obtain an extension, you will have until October 15, 2019 to file your tax return. Note that members of the military who are stationed in a combat zone may be allowed an additional filing extension. For more information, see IRS Publication 3 (Armed Forces’ Tax Guide).

If you are not paying your 2019 income tax through withholding (or you will not pay enough tax during the year that way), pay the second installment of your 2019 estimated tax by this date. You can use IRS Form 1040-ES (Estimated Tax for Individuals). For more information, see IRS Publication 505 (Tax Withholding and Estimated Tax).

Corporations
Make the second installment payment for 2019 estimated income tax. You can use the worksheet, IRS Form 1120-W (Estimated Tax for Corporations), to help you calculate your estimated tax for the year.
