If you have HI taxes owed, you must file Form N-101A with 100% of your estimated tax liability by April 20, 2018. The HI Department of Taxation will not accept federal extension Form 4868 in place of Form N-101A.
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.
