The 2021 Arizona State Income Tax Return forms for Tax Year 2021 (Jan. 1 - Dec. 31, 2021) can be e-Filed together with the IRS Income Tax Return by the April 18, 2022 due date.  However, if you file a tax extension, you can e-File your Taxes until October 15, 2022 October 17, 2022 without a late filing penalty. If you owe Taxes and don't pay on time, you might face late tax payment penalties. Tip: File on time, even if you can't pay on time, as the late filing penalties are higher than the late payment penalties.  Estimate your possible IRS penalties by using our free PENALTYucator tool.

Here on eFile.com you can eFile your IRS and Arizona State Tax Return e.g resident, nonresident, or part-year resident returns together. Keep in mind, the IRS and the AZ State Tax Agencies require you to e-File a Federal Income Tax Return at the same time you e-file your Arizona State Tax Return. This is not an eFile.com policy but an IRS and State Agency policy. Thus, technically you cannot e-File anywhere - not just eFile.com - an Arizona Tax Return without also e-filing the associated IRS Tax Return. But there is good news, please read on.

Detailed instructions on how you can only prepare and mail in - not eFile - an Arizona 2021 Tax Return - here via eFile.com. However, you must download/print and sign the forms and mail them to the Tax Agency.

Arizona Tax Extension

For Tax Year 2021, if you expect a refund or you don't owe taxes, you do not have to file a tax extension. However, if you believe you will owe taxes and can't file on time, you should take action and here are the options available for Arizona:

  • If you do not owe Arizona income taxes by the tax deadline of April 18, 2022, you do not have to prepare and file a AZ tax extension. In case you expect a AZ tax refund, you will need to file or e-File your AZ tax return in order to receive your tax refund money. 
  • If you owe AZ income taxes, you will either have to submit a AZ tax return or extension by the April 18, 2022 tax deadline in order to avoid late filing penalties. The extension will only avoid late filing penalties until Oct. 15, 2022 Oct. 17, 2022. Note: Unless you pay all your Taxes or eFile your tax return by Oct. 15, 2022 Oct. 17, 2022, the late filing penalties will start again after Oct. 15, 2022 Oct. 17, 2022. You have the follow two options to file a AZ tax extension:
    • Pay all or some of your Arizona income taxes online via: AZTaxes and select "204" as your payment type. Paying your AZ taxes online on time will be considered a AZ tax extension and you do not have to mail in Form 204
    • Complete Form 204, include a Check or Money Order, and mail both to the address on Form 204.
    • Even if you filed an extension, you will still need to file your AZ tax return either via eFile or by paper by Oct. 15, 2022 Oct. 17, 2022.
  • Important: If you owe Arizona and/or IRS income taxes and do not file an IRS and Arizona tax return or extension by April 18, 2022, you will be subject to IRS and CA late filing penalties. Estimate IRS late filing, payment penalties. In addition, if you do not pay your taxes by April 18, 2022, you will be subject to late tax payment penalties. Filing an extension on time will ONLY eliminate the late filing penalties but not the late tax payment penalties. Late filing penalties are generally higher than late payment penalties, thus file something on time even if you can't pay anything on time!

The deadline to e-file an IRS extension for 2021 Tax Returns is April 18, 2022. e-File a 2021 Tax Extension for free on eFile.com. Here are instructions on whether you should consider a Tax Extension or not.

The extended IRS/Arizona eFile deadline is Oct. 15, 2022 Oct. 17, 2022 - eFileIT*.  Or, if you plan to file or mail-in an Arizona tax return on paper, the AZ Mailing Addresses are listed below.

Arizona State Tax Payment Options
You can select one of these payment options either after you have e-filed or filed your 2021 Arizona Tax Return. Alternatively, you can pay Arizona income taxes here prior to filing (e.g in the case of an extension). Plus, you can make online Arizona tax estimate payments for next tax year. If you eFiled your taxes and pay online, you do not have to send in Arizona paper forms (e.g. payer tax return, extension form, or tax estimate form). 
Create a payment with State of Arizona Department of Revenue. Make sure you select the appropriate payment type, filing status, and tax year when submitting your payment.  
This is a free option if you want to pay your taxes owed via your bank account.
