Hawaii grants all taxpayers an automatic 6-month extension of time to file (not to pay). The extended tax return due date is October 15, 2015. You do not need to file a form to get a Hawaii state tax extension unless a tax payment is due. The HI Department of Taxation will not accept federal extension Form 4868 in place of Form N-101A.

If you have HI taxes owed, you must file Form N-101A with 100% of your estimated tax liability by April 20, 2015.  Make sure that your HI state return includes the full payment of any tax not already paid. Use Form N-200V to send your payment to the Department of Taxation for efficient and accurate processing.
