In a March 8 Press Release, House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Richard E. Neal and Oversight Subcommittee Chairman Bill Pascrell, Jr. demanded the IRS to extend the 2021 tax filing season due to pandemic strains on the IRS and taxpayers.

The Press Release noted that as of the end of February, the number of returns filed was down by nearly 25 percent from last year at the same time, and the number of returns processed by the IRS was down by 31 percent. Further, only 27 percent of telephone calls to the IRS are being answered, indicating that approximately 3 out of every 4 taxpayers trying to reach the IRS are unable to get help.

Chairman Neal stated:

โ€œLast year, the tax filing season was extended by three months to July 15, 2020. We want to remind the IRS that many Americans continue to face the same health and economic challenges that necessitated an extension last year. Facing enormous strain and anxiety, taxpayers need flexibility now. We demand that the IRS announce an extension as soon as possible.โ€
