IRS Notice 2020-18 supersedes IRS Notice 2020-17, which was issued two days earlier, on March 18, 2020, and provided for a capped amount of federal income tax payments to be deferred until July 15, 2020. The new notice was issued after Congress urged the Treasury Department to extend the tax filing deadline until July 15.
