Which States Have Delayed Tax Payments or Filings?

 

While the IRS’s one-month filing extension is far less than the agency should be doing to help overburdened taxpayers, most states are at least following the federal government’s lead and moving this year’s tax deadline from April 15 to May 17. As of right now, only one state is still resisting a May extension: Hawaii.

Below are links to each announcement and whether the postponement is for filing, payment, or both. For the feds, filing and payment are postponed, although estimated quarterly payments are still due on April 15. Of course, be sure to check with your tax advisor to verify any information relating to your tax return. Especially in Alabama and Virginia, which extended the filing deadline but not the payment deadline, meaning interest will be due on payments made after the original deadline.
