The 2021 Mississippi State Income Tax Return forms for Tax Year 2021 (Jan. 1 - Dec. 31, 2021) can be e-Filed together with the IRS Income Tax Return by the April 18, 2022 due date.  If you file a tax extension you can e-File your Taxes until October 15, 2022 October 17, 2022 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 you can't pay on time, as the late filing penalties are higher than the late payment penalties.

Your IRS and Mississippi State Tax Returns (e.g resident, nonresident, or part-year resident returns) can be prepared and e-File together. 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 Mississippi 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 Mississippi 2021 Tax Return - here via eFile.com. However, you must download/print and sign the forms and mail them to the Tax Agency.

Mississippi Tax Extension

For Tax Year 2021, if you expect a refund or you don't owe taxes, you do not have to file a tax extension. However, if you believe you will owe taxes and can't file on time, you should take action and here are the options available for Mississippi:

  • If you do not owe Mississippi income taxes by the tax deadline of April 18, 2022, you do not have to prepare and file a MS tax extension. In case you expect a MS tax refund, you will need to file or e-File your MS tax return in order to receive your tax refund money. 
  • If you owe MS income taxes, you will either have to submit a MS tax return or extension by the April 18, 2022 tax deadline in order to avoid late filing penalties. The extension will only avoid late filing penalties until Oct. 15, 2022 Oct. 17, 2022. Note: Unless you pay all your Taxes or eFile your tax return by Oct. 15, 2022 Oct. 17, 2022, the late filing penalties will start again after Oct. 15, 2022 Oct. 17, 2022. You have the following options to file a MS tax extension:
    • Pay all or some of your Mississippi income taxes online via: Mississippi Department of Revenue. Paying your MS taxes online on time will be considered a MS tax extension and you do not have to mail in Form 80-106.
    • Complete Form 80-106, include a Check or Money Order, and mail both to the address on Form 80-106.
    • Even if you filed an extension, you will still need to file your MS tax return either via eFile or by paper by Oct. 15, 2022 Oct. 17, 2022.
  • Important: If you owe Mississippi and/or IRS income taxes and do not file an IRS and Mississippi tax return or extension by April 18, 2022, you will be subject to IRS and MS late filing penalties. Estimate IRS late filing, payment penalties. In addition, if you do not pay your taxes by April 18, 2022, you will be subject to late tax payment penalties. Filing an extension on time will ONLY eliminate the late filing penalties but not the late tax payment penalties. Late filing penalties are generally higher than late payment penalties, thus file something on time even if you can't pay anything on time!

The deadline to e-file an IRS extension for 2021 Tax Returns is April 18, 2022. e-File a 2021 Tax Extension for free on eFile.com. Here are instructions on whether you should consider a Tax Extension or not.

The extended IRS/Mississippi eFile deadline is Oct. 15, 2022 Oct. 17, 2022 - eFileIT.  Or, if you plan to file or mail-in a Mississippi tax return on paper, the MS Mailing Addresses are listed below.
