Arizona Income Taxes and AZ State Tax Forms

Arizona
"The Grand Canyon State"

Arizona State Income Tax Return forms for Tax Year 2018 (Jan. 1 - Dec. 31, 2018) can be e-Filed in conjunction with an IRS Income Tax Return until October 15, 2019. In January 2020, you can e-File Tax Year 2019.

eFile.com makes it easy for you to e-file your IRS and Arizona State Tax Return (e.g resident, nonresident, or part-year resident returns). However, the IRS and the respective State Tax Agencies require you to e-file a Federal Income Tax Return at the same time you e-file a 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 2018 Tax Return - here via eFile.com. However, you must download/print and sign the forms and mail them to the Tax Agency.

* Due to IRS and State Tax Agency tax data sharing and validation requirements, you can only e-file a State Income Tax Return while also e-filing a Federal Income Tax Return. This is not an eFile.com created policy, but all online tax web sites have to adhere to this IRS/state issued tax data sharing policy. You can however prepare all 44 State Income Tax Returns on eFile.com if you have already e-Filed or filed your IRS return. Instructions on how you can ONLY prepare and file State Income Tax Return(s). Only on eFile.com can you prepare, file or e-file unlimited State Tax Returns for one low price and not pay for each State return like you would do on H&R Block® vs. TurboTax®. Dare to Compare Now.

Automatic Arizona Income Tax Extension

For Tax Year 2018 you can e-File an IRS Tax Extension by April 15, 2019 for free on eFile.com (instructions on whether you should consider a Tax Extension or not). Unlike the IRS, Arizona grants all taxpayers an automatic 6-month extension (which means you do not file an extension in Arizona) of time to file penalty free beyond the April 15, 2019 due date. The extended e-File deadline is Oct. 15, 2019 and the Arizona paper filing due date is October 15, 2019. Keep in mind however, an Arizona or IRS tax extension does not extend the due date to pay owed taxes or income tax liabilities penalty free.

If you owe Arizona and/or IRS income taxes and don't pay them by Tax Day, you will be charged Arizona and IRS late tax payment penalties. Calculate and estimate IRS late payment penalties. If you expect to owe taxes, and you are going to take advantage of the Arizona automatic extension of time to file, you should still pay what you owe and submit an Extension Payment Form 204 - before April 15, 2019.

Instructions on how to eFile an IRS tax extension for free on eFile.com by April 15, 2019.

The extended IRS/Arizona eFile deadline is Oct. 15, 2019 - eFileIT* now. If you plan to file or mail-in an Arizona tax return on paper - the Forms and Mailing Address are below - your due date is October 15, 2019.
