Mississippi Income Taxes and MS State Tax Forms

efile Mississippi tax return
Mississippi
"The Magnolia State"

The 2019 Mississippi State Income Tax Return forms for Tax Year 2019 (Jan. 1 - Dec. 31, 2019) can be e-Filed together with the IRS Income Tax Return by the April 15, 2020 due date. 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 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 2019 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. 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. 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.

Automatic Mississippi Income Tax Extension

If you are certain that you cannot file your Mississippi 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 15, 2019. Please be aware that Mississippi will not accept the federal extension form as an extension for your Mississippi tax return. However, if you expect to owe income taxes, you should submit your payment with payment voucher Form 80-106. If you efiled your return and are making a payment by check or money order, you must complete a Form 80-106 on efile.com. If you are making a payment by credit card, a Form 80-106 is not needed. If you are making an automatic extension payment, you also must use Form 80-106 unless it is made electronically. Use efile.com and prepare a Mississippi tax return to find out what your Mississippi state income tax payment will be.

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