Breaking Covid-19 Tax News Update: IRS’ “Substantial Presence 60-Day Covid-19 Waiver is Set to Expire

It looks like the IRS is ending their tax grace period, the 60-day “Covid-19 Emergency Period” for eligible non-resident alien individuals. In U.S. Treasury Department terms, IRS Rev. Proc. 2020-20 and Rev Proc 2020-27 are coming to an end.
The IRS released relief measures (Rev. Proc 2020-20, Rev. Proc. 2020-27) in April 2020. In brief, the measures allowed nonresident individuals, foreign corporations, and partnerships to choose a 60-day period between Feb. 1 and April 1 in which the IRS would not consider their U.S. activity to trigger a tax liability. The agency updated its relief information earlier in June 2020.
