2021 State Tax Deadline Extension Dates for Every State (Updated 4/9/21)

As one of many coronavirus (COVID-19) relief measures, the IRS announced a 2021 tax deadline extension (for 2020 income tax returns and payments), without the need to file a tax extension, to May 17. IRA & HSA contribution deadlines in 2021 were extended as well. Estimated tax payment deadlines were left unchanged from the typical tax deadline of April 15 (note: for residents of Louisiana, Oklahoma, and Texas the IRS deadline had already been extended to June 15 for income tax return filing, payments, and IRA contributions, due to winter storms).




Following the announcement, a number of states decided to align with IRS and do the same. But, just to make things confusing, a few states have not yet extended their tax deadlines, and others have extended their deadlines to dates after May 17.

To consolidate for readers, I decided to research and find out the details for all 50 states and District of Columbia. The below information is updated as of April 9, 2021. I expect that some states that have not already extended filing and payment deadlines may do so, so check out your state’s tax department website for updates.
