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.

It was another brutally hot afternoon throughout the Tri-State; afternoon highs peaked in the mid to low 90s for our third straight day with heat indices approaching and even surpassing 100° at times earlier on. As for the remainder of the evening, one can expect much of the same - temperatures will stick around the upper 80s through at least dinnertime before dipping to 80° or so by 10PM. Winds shifting southward overnight will only allow temperatures to fall as low as the mid to low 70s throughout the Ohio Valley; we'll kick off what may end up being our hottest day in years with a morning low temperature of 73° in Evansville.
