The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) said Wednesday that it was pushing the deadline for filing tax returns back.

IRS officials said Wednesday that the new deadline to file would be Monday, May 17.

Lawmakers and tax preparers sought the postponement due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, which is still causing problems for taxpayers and the IRS alike.

We're still waiting on the actual cold front to get here. That should arrive around dawn, bringing mainly light rain. The front may also be responsible for perking up a couple bands of heavier rain and lightning east of Evansville for midday Saturday.
