A search for charged Higgs bosons decaying into a tau lepton and a neutrino is presented in the hadronic and leptonic final states. The search is based on the 13 TeV dataset with 35.9 fb$^{-1}$ of integrated luminosity collected with the CMS experiment in 2016. Results are presented for charged Higgs boson mass hypotheses ranging from 80 GeV to 3 TeV, where the intermediate mass range around the top quark mass is included. 95\% CL upper limits are set on the charged Higgs boson production cross section. The model independent result is interpreted in the MSSM m$_\text{h}^{\text{mod-}}$ benchmark scenario.
