New York State Income Tax Return forms for Tax Year 2019 (Jan. 1 - Dec. 31, 2019) can be e-Filed in conjunction with an IRS Income Tax Return until October 15, 2020.

eFile.com makes it easy for you to e-file your IRS and New York 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 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 New York Tax Return without also e-filing the associated IRS Tax Return. But there is good news, please read on.

Tip: File on time, even if you can't pay on time, as the late filing penalties are higher than the late payment penalties.  Estimate your IRS penalties by using our free PENALTYucator tool.

Detailed instructions on how you can only prepare and mail in - not eFile - a New York 2019 Tax Return - here via eFile.com. However, you must download/print and sign the forms and mail them to the New York Tax Agency - the address is on the form.

How to File for an Automatic New York Tax Extension

For Tax Year 2019, the deadline has passed and you can no longer e-File an IRS Tax Extension

If you are certain that you cannot file your New York return by the deadline, you needed to file Form IT-370 by July 15, 2020 to receive an automatic 3-month extension of time to file your return (not to pay). The extended tax return due date is October 15, 2020. Please be aware that New York will not accept the federal extension form as an extension for your New York tax return. However, if you expect to owe income taxes, you should submit your payment with Form IT-370 by July 15, 2020, or you will accrue late payment penalties and interest. If you efiled your return and are making a payment by check or money order, you must complete Form IT-370 on eFile.com. If you are making a payment by credit card, Form IT-370 is not needed. If you are making an automatic extension payment, you also must use Form IT-370 unless it is made electronically. Use eFile.com and prepare a New York tax return to find out what your New York state income tax payment will be.
