(CNN) -- You may get an extra month to pay your dues to Uncle Sam this year.
The IRS plans to delay the federal tax filing deadline until mid-May, according to an official.
The official says the government wants to give Americans more time because the pandemic made taxes more complicated for some. But the IRS is also swamped with it's workload right now.
The service is still processing millions of 2020 tax returns. While at the same time, sending out a new round of relief checks and dealing with new unemployment benefits and expanded child tax credits.
But keep in mind, even if the IRS gives you more time, state taxes in more cases are still due by April 15.
If you're filing in Hawaii, Delaware, Iowa, Virginia, Louisiana or Maryland, you have more time for state taxes as well.
