    U.S. State Income Tax Filing Deadline Changes

    In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, US Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin announced on March 20th that the U.S. filing deadline has been postponed from April 15th to July 15th. However, this extension only applies to filing of Federal individual income tax returns; each state is responsible for setting and announcing their own deadlines.

    State legislators across the nation have been working on comprehensive COVID-19 measures, which include considering the extension of state income tax returns. The below graphic displays the current filing deadline status as of April 1, 2020, which is subject to change as state laws are updated or amended. It is expected that the majority of states will push the deadline to later this summer, but taxpayers are encouraged to monitor the state(s) they have filing obligations for, and note that some states may still assess interest on payments made after the original April 15, 2020 deadline.

    *Data included here is all current as of April 1, 2020.
