State of North Carolina
Personal Income Tax Extensions
Modified 2019 Tax Return Due Date: July 15, 2020
North Carolina Filing Due Date: NC individual income tax returns are due by April 15 — or by the 15th day of the 4th month following the close of the taxable year (for fiscal year filers).
Extended Deadline with North Carolina Tax Extension: North Carolina offers a 6-month extension, which moves the individual filing deadline from April 15 to October 15 (for calendar year filers).
North Carolina Tax Extension Form: To apply for a North Carolina extension, file Form D-410 by the original due date of your return. Form D-410 can be submitted by paper mail, or filed online through NC Electronic Services: www.dornc.com/electronic/d410
North Carolina Extension Payment Requirement: An extension of time to file is not an extension of time to pay your North Carolina income tax. All state tax payments are due by the original deadline of the return. Even though you aren’t required to make an extension payment on your NC income tax, any tax that hasn’t been paid by the proper due date will be subject to interest and penalties. To pay the tax balance due for your North Carolina extension, use Form D-410, or pay online using NC E-Services: dornc.com/electronic/individuals
North Carolina Tax Extension Tip: NC taxpayers are encouraged to file their state extension electronically. If you would like a paper version of Form D-410, you can call the NC Department of Revenue (1-877-252-3052) or request it online: dornc.com/forms/order
