Most people may already know, due to the coronavirus pandemic, The Treasury Department and IRS have provided relief for taxpayers by extending the federal tax deadline to July 15th, 2020 and the State of California FTB moved their extension from June 15 on the same date as the Federal, July 15, 2020. There are no penalties for deferring your payment and no interest will accrue during this period.
The IRS website posted a Q & A regarding the extension to File and Pay Deadlines click on the link. https://www.irs.gov/newsroom/filing-and-payment-deadlines-questions-and-answers

- You have NOT entered our College/ Federal School Code (030357) in your submitted FAFSA or DREAM Act Application
