Your Indiana Tax Return

Efile.com makes it easy for you to e-file your 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 efile a state tax return. This is not an efile.com policy but an IRS and state agency policy. Many taxpayers have asked how they can only prepare and file a state income tax return. The efile.com tax application lets you prepare a state tax return only, however you cannot efile the state return upon completion. Instead, you will have to download the completed state tax return as a PDF file, print it, sign it, and mail it to the respective state - the address is on the PDF file. Find more detailed instructions on how to prepare and file a state only return on efile.com.

* 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. Find out how to only prepare and file a state tax return. Only on efile.com can you prepare and efile unlimited state tax returns for one low price. Most other sites charge a per state price.

You may then resubmit your state return at no additional charge until it is accepted by the state. View a list of all Indiana State efile Income Tax Return Error Reject Codes.

How to File an Indiana Tax Extension

If you are certain that you cannot file your Indiana tax return by the deadline, you need to complete and file Form IT-9 to obtain a 60-day extension of time to file your Indiana return (not to pay taxes owed). The extended tax return due date is November 15, 2019. If you file federal tax extension Form 4868 and you paid at least 90% of taxes owed to the state, you automatically gain an extension of time to file your IN state tax return and you do not need to file Form IT-9. Complete and file Form ES-40 with your tax payment. If you efiled your return and are making a payment by check or money order, you must complete Form ES-40 on efile.com. If you are making a payment by credit card, a Form ES-40 is not needed. If you are making an automatic extension payment, you also must use Form ES-40 unless it is made electronically. Use efile.com and prepare an Indiana tax return to find out what your Indiana state income tax payment will be.

Important: Do you need to prepare and e-file an IRS or federal tax extension as well?

How to File an Indiana Tax Amendment

Amended Indiana state tax returns cannot be efiled; they must be filed by mail. Learn how to prepare and file an Indiana state tax amendment.
