The IRS postponed to May 17, 2021, the date to file 2020 Forms 1040 and 1040-SR and to pay any related tax. The due dates for estimated tax payments for 2021 were not postponed. The first 2021 estimated tax installment is due April 15, 2021. If an individual taxpayer has a 2020 overpayment and elects to credit the 2020 overpayment against the 2021 estimated tax, the date on which the 2020 overpayment is applied against the 2021 estimated tax depends on: (a) the date(s) of payment, and (b) the extent to which an overpayment exists as of April 15, 2021. An extension of time to file has no effect on either the date of payment or the date on which an overpayment exists.
