Your Missouri Income 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.

Missouri efile Error Codes

If your Missouri state return was rejected by the state and not efile.com, you will receive an error reject code. If you prepared and efiled your return on efile.com, we will provide you with an explanation of how to correct the error on your return. You may then resubmit your state return at no additional charge until it is accepted by the state. View a list of all Missouri State efile Income Tax Return Error Reject Codes.

How To File an Missouri Tax Extension

If you are certain that you cannot file your Missouri 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 Missouri will not accept the federal extension form as an extension for your Missouri tax return. However, if you expect to owe income taxes, you should submit your payment with payment voucher Form MO-60. If you efiled your return and are making a payment by check or money order, you must complete a Form MO-60 on efile.com. If you are making a payment by credit card, a Form MO-60 is not needed. If you are making an automatic extension payment, you also must use Form MO-60 unless it is made electronically. Use efile.com and prepare an Missouri tax return to find out what your Missouri state income tax payment will be.

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