Hawaii
"The Aloha State"

The Hawaii State Income Tax Return forms for Tax Year 2019 (Jan. 1 - Dec. 31, 2019) can be e-Filed in conjunction with an IRS Income Tax Return by the April 15, 2020 deadline. If you file a tax extension, you can e-File your Taxes until October 15, 2020 without a late filing penalty. However, if you owe Taxes and don't pay on time, you might face late tax payment penaltiesTip: File on time, even if you can't pay on time, as the late filing penalties are higher than the late payment penalties.

eFile.com makes it easy for you to e-file your IRS and Hawaii 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 Hawaii 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 Hawaii 2018 Tax Return - here via eFile.com. However, you must download/print and sign the forms and mail them to the Tax Agency. The address is listed on the form. You can look up your IRS mailing address based on your state here.

How to correct a rejected Tax Return
If your HI Tax Return was rejected by the HI Tax Agency - not eFile.com - instructions on how to correct a rejected Hawaii Tax Return.
1. Failure to File Penalty: The penalty is 5% of the total tax due per month. The maximum penalty 25% of the taxes owed amount.
2. Failure to Pay Penalty: The penalty is 20% of the tax that hasn't been paid after 60 days past the deadline. In case of the failure to pay penalty being imposed, interest will also be calculated on a monthly basis at a rate of 0.66%. When a taxpayer makes a partial payment to cover the tax debt due, the payment will first cover the interest accumulated and then the actual tax due.
3. IRS Penalties: Calculate and Estimate your potential IRS Income Tax Return Penalties.

Automatic Hawaii Income Tax Extension

For Tax Year 2019, you can e-File a free IRS Tax Extension by April 15, 2020 on eFile.com (information on whether you should file a Tax Extension or not). 

If you are certain that you cannot file your Hawaii return by the deadline, you do not need to file for an extension. You will automatically receive a 6-month extension of time to file your return (not to pay). The extended tax return due date is October 20, 2019. Please be aware that Hawaii will not accept the federal extension form as an extension for your Hawaii tax return. However, if you expect to owe income taxes, you should submit your payment with payment voucher Form N-101A. If you efiled your return and are making a payment by check or money order, you must complete a Form N-101A on eFile.com. If you are making a payment by credit card, a Form N-101A is not needed. If you are making an automatic extension payment, you also must use Form N-101A unless it is made electronically. Use eFile.com and prepare a Hawaii tax return to find out what your Hawaii state income tax payment will be.

If you owe Hawaii and/or IRS income taxes and don't pay them by Tax Day, you will be charged Hawaii and IRS late tax payment penalties. Calculate and estimate your IRS late payment penalties.
