If you’re behind on preparing your taxes, you can breathe a sigh of relief: The IRS has pushed Tax Day to May 17.

This is the second year in a row the agency has postponed the tax deadline, which is usually April 15. In 2020, the IRS delayed the deadline until July 15 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. This year, the agency had already pushed back the deadline for victims of severe winter storms after a storm caused power outages for days in Texas.
