States Conform to the New IRS Filing Deadline State & Local Tax

As noted in our recent article, “Tax Filing Due Date for Individuals Extended to May 17”, the Treasury Department and Internal Revenue Service announced on March 17, 2021, that the federal income tax filing due date for individuals for the 2020 tax year will be extended automatically from April 15, 2021, to May 17, 2021.

At this time, the automatic extension applies to individual tax returns and does not apply to first quarter estimated tax payments, gift, estate, corporation or trust return filings, which are still due April 15, 2021.

As expected, most states have conformed to the federal deadline with the exception of Hawaii, where the return filing deadline will remain April 20, 2021.

Marcum’s State and Local Tax advisors will update this list as more states announce conformity to the federal filing deadlines.
