Delaware Income Taxes and DE State Tax Forms

efile Delaware tax return
Delaware
"The First State"

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

eFile.com makes it easy for you to e-file your IRS and Delaware 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 - a Delaware 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 - a Delaware 2018 Tax Return - here via eFile.com. However, you must download/print and sign the forms and mail them to the Tax Agency.

How To File a Delaware Tax Extension

You can obtain an automatic 5 and a half month extension of time to file your DE state tax return (not pay any taxes owed). Simply complete and file Form 1027 by the DE state tax return deadline, April 30, 2019. You do not have to file Form 1027 if the tax balance due is zero or less and you filed a federal tax return extension. Delaware state tax return extensions can be efiled from March 1 to April 30, 2019. If you have a balance due on your Form 200-01, 200-02, or 200-03 AND you're efiling your DE state tax return, submit your payment with a complete Form 200-V (Electronic Filer Payment Voucher).
