Americans get three extra months to file their 1040s, per this tweet from Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin.
At @realDonaldTrump’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.

And #taxtwitter rejoices:
What's that sound in the distance?
It's all of #TaxTwitter jumping and screaming for joy that the sane decision was made to extend the tax filing deadline to align with extended payment deadline. @stevenmnuchin1 https://t.co/LWgoENBevG
