"The Hoosier State"

The 2020 Indiana State Income Tax Return forms for Tax Year 2020 (Jan. 1 - Dec. 31, 2020) can be e-Filed together with the IRS Income Tax Return by the April 15, 2021 May 17, 2021 due date. If you file a tax extension you can e-File your Taxes until October 15, 2021 without a late filing penalty. However, if you owe Taxes and don't pay on time, you might face late tax payment penalties. Tip: File on time, even if you can't pay on time, as the late filing penalties are higher than the late payment penalties.

File Indiana and IRS Taxes e.g resident, nonresident, or part-year resident returns now. Keep in mind, 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 Indiana 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 Indiana 2020 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.

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.

How to File an Indiana Tax Extension

If you are certain that you cannot file your Indiana tax return by the deadline, you can either pay the taxes online or complete and file Form IT-9 by May 17, 2021 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 October 15, 2021. 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. Include your tax payment with Form IT-9. Use eFile.com and prepare an Indiana tax return to find out what your Indiana state income tax payment will be.

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

Instructions on how to eFile an IRS tax extension for free on eFile.com by May 17, 2020.

Indiana State Tax Payment Options
You can select one of these payment options either after you have e-filed or filed your 2020 Indiana Tax Return. Alternatively, you can pay Indiana income taxes here prior to filing (e.g in the case of an extension). Plus, you can make online Indiana tax estimate payments for next tax year. If you eFiled your taxes and pay online, you do not have to send in Indiana paper forms (e.g. payer tax return, extension form, or tax estimate form). 
Go to the Indiana Department of Revenue site to submit your payment. Make sure you choose "Individual Tax Return (IT-40)", and then select the correct tax year and filing status. On the next screen you will need to enter information about yourself (e.g. First Name, Last Name, SSN, Phone Number, Address etc).  Once you verified your information, you will need to enter your "Payment Amount" and choose "ACH Debit" if paying directly from your bank account.  You will see a "Payment Confirmation" screen after your payment has been submitted.
Check the status of your direct payment
This is a free option if you want to pay your taxes owed via your bank account.
Submit a tax payment through the state tax agency's site. When you're on the site, select the "Individual Tax Return (IT-40)" option, then follow the on-screen prompts to enter and submit your information (e.g. SSN, Tax Year, Form Type, Filing Status).  On the payment method screen, select "Credit Card" if you want to pay your tax payment via your credit or debit card.
There is an additional service fee added to each payment you submit with your card.
Check or Money Order
You can submit your payment by mail.  Make your check payable to "Indiana Department of Revenue".  Mail them to the address below.
Use this payment option if you wish to submit your payment via check or money order in the mail. 
Estimated Tax Payment Options
Choose one of these options: 1) Go to the Indiana Department of Revenue site to submit your estimated payment. Select "Individual Estimated IT-40ES", then follow the on-screen prompts to enter your information.  2) Pay via ACH Debit by sending tax payments from your bank account.  After submitting payment, you will see a "Payment Confirmation" screen which you may print to save for your records.  3) Pay via credit or debit card through Indiana's site (choose the "Individual Estimated IT-40ES" option). Be aware that a service fee is added to each payment you submit with your card. 4) Complete voucher Form ES-40. Attach a check or money order for the tax period payable to "Indiana Department of Revenue". Write your Social Security numbers on the check or money order. Mail the voucher and check/money order to the Form ES-40 address here.
Use one of these payment options if you want to submit estimated taxes rather than submit all your taxes owed at once. 
Many of these online IRS tax payment options can be used before or after you e-Filed your Income Taxes. You can pay tax extension and tax estimate payments. For estimate payments, you do not have to submit a form. Extension you can eFile on eFile.com for free.
These payment options are independent from you preparing and eFiling your tax returns on eFile.com. eFile.com offers these payment options for the convenience of all tax payers.
