The general filing deadline for 2019 tax returns in the cantons would have been 31 March 2020. However, with the COVID-19 relief measures, the filing deadlines for individual income tax returns have been extended to a variety of dates—the new filing dates range from 31 May 2020, or 30 June 2020, or 31 July 2020, or even 15 September 2020 (depending on the canton).

The Swiss Federal Council also has provided relief measures regarding the deadline for payment of federal income tax. For federal income tax payments generally due between 1 March 2020 and 31 December 2020, no late-payment interest will be levied because the tax payment is delayed.
