Revised State Tax Deadlines Post Coronavirus (COVID-19) for Every State

As one of many coronavirus (COVID-19) relief measures, the IRS previously extended the tax deadlines for 2020 (for 2019 income tax returns and payments) and Q1 and Q2 2020 estimated tax payments from the typical tax deadline of April 15 to the new deadline of July 15, 2020 – without the need to file a extension.




Following that announcement, a number of states decided to align with the U.S. federal government and do the same. But, just to make things confusing, a few states did not extend their tax deadline at all. And others extended their deadlines to dates before or after July 15.

Many states also have decided to extend Q1 estimated tax payment deadlines and a few also extended Q2 estimated tax payment deadlines as well.

To consolidate for all, I decided to research and find out the details for all 50 states and District of Columbia. The below information is as of April 4, 2020. 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.
