Now that you’ve gotten extra months to file your taxes by doing an online tax extension with FileLater you might be curious what happens next. With the extra time our team has addressed some of the most common tax extension questions.
The IRS has extended the individual tax return filing and tax payment deadlines to July 15th. As of 3/28, all states have also extended their personal tax return filing and tax payment deadlines to July 15th EXCEPT the following states:
Puerto Rico (5/15)
New Jersey (4/15) and New Hampshire (4/15) have not yet announced any extensions to their deadlines but the Governors of both states have indicated they will have an announcement very soon.
Taxpayers who are serving in a combat zone or in a contingency operation in support of the Armed Forces are entitled to automatically extend their tax filing AND tax payment deadlines. When taxpayers are serving in a qualified combat zone, the deadline for filing and payment is increased by 180 days from the last day they are in a qualified combat zone OR the last day of continuous hospitalization related to injury from military service.
