Alabama has announced that the tax filing deadline for individual returns is May 17th.
Alabama Filing Due Date: Individual income tax returns are due by April 15 — or by the 15th day of the 4th month following the end of the taxable year (for fiscal year filers).
Extended Deadline with Alabama Tax Extension: Alabama offers a 6-month extension, which moves the filing deadline to October 15 (for calendar year filers).
Alabama Tax Extension Form: Alabama tax extensions are automatic, which means that individuals are not required to file an extension form (paper or electronic) in order to get an Alabama extension.
Alabama Extension Payment Requirement: An extension of time to file is not an extension of time to pay your Alabama income tax. All state tax payments are due by the original deadline of the return. Any tax not paid by the proper due date will be subject to penalties and interest.
If you owe Alabama income tax, you can make an extension payment with Form 40V. Or, you can pay electronically using the “Alabama Interactive” Online Tax Extension Payment system: www.alabamainteractive.org/taxextension
