Good News For Crypto Traders in the U.S. as IRS Extends Tax Deadline

The tax deadline in the USA has been extended due to the Covid-19 outbreak, and this concerns crypto as well.
(Updated at 16:05 UTC: updates in bold.)

The U.S. Treasury Department and Internal Revenue Service (IRS) have issued guidance extending the tax deadline 2020 for all individual and other non-corporate tax filers with up to USD 1 million in owed federal income tax (self-employment tax included), from April 15 to July 15, without penalties or interest, says the press release. Corporate taxpayers get a similar deferment of up to USD 10 million of tax payments. However, "Americans should file their tax returns by April 15," said Treasury Secretary Steven T. Mnuchin, as people will be able to get their refunds sooner.
The extension follows Donald Trump’s Covid-19 emergency declaration. Mnuchin adds that "Treasury and IRS are ensuring that hardworking Americans and businesses have additional liquidity for the next several months," as this guidance is expected to "result in about USD 300 billion of additional liquidity in the economy in the near term," claims the announcement.
Laura Walter, a certified public accountant and cryptocurrency tax specialist, a.k.a. Crypto Tax Girl, explained on Twitter that the filing date remains the same, but the payment date can be extended, meaning that any penalties and interest will bot being accruing until July 15, adding that there is a form that'll provide an automatic six-month extension to October 15.
Walter has updated her thread, however, stating that the tax filing deadline has been officially extended to July 15, meaning that all taxpayers "now have until July 15 to both file and pay their taxes," she writes. She has cited Mnuchin's tweet, in which he claims that, at the president's direction, "we are moving Tax Day from April 15 to July 15. All taxpayers and businesses will have this additional time to file and make payments without interest or penalties."
As to what the Cryptoverse needs to concern themselves with regarding taxes, Walter lists taxable crypto events in her earlier post.
