Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin says the government is extending the deadline Americans have to file their tax returns to July 15th.
Mnuchin has announced earlier this week that Americans had until that date to pay, but were still expected them to file by April 15th.
But, if you are getting money back from the government, Mnuchin says go ahead and file by mid April and you will receive the cash.
