"The Beehive State"

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 an IRS and State Tax Agency policy, not an eFile.com policy. Therefore, you technically cannot e-File anywhere - not just eFile.com - a Utah Tax Return without also e-filing the associated IRS Tax Return. eFile.com makes it easy for you to prepare and e-file your IRS and Utah State Tax Return (e.g resident, nonresident, or part-year resident returns).

Having said that, there is a way to prepare only a Utah State Tax Return: Detailed instructions on how you can only prepare and mail in - not eFile - a Utah 2020 Tax Return - here via eFile.com. You can complete and sign the 2020 tax return forms online here on eFile, before you download, print and mail them to the state tax agency. The address is listed on the form. The IRS mailing address can be looked up here.

Utah Tax Extension

For Tax Year 2020, if you expect a tax refund, you do not need to file a tax extension.  However, if you owe taxes and can't file on time, here are several options for the state of Utah:

  • If you do not owe Utah income taxes by the May 17, 2021 tax deadline, you do not have to file and prepare for UT extension.  If you expect a refund, you will need to file or e-file a UT tax return to receive your tax refund.
  • If you owe UT income taxes, you will either have to submit a UT tax return or prepayment coupon form by the April 15, 2021 May 17, 2021 tax deadline in order to avoid late penalties. The extension will only avoid late filing penalties until Oct. 15, 2021. Prepayment requirements for filing an extension by May 17, 2021:
    • 90% of UT 2020 tax due;
    • 100% of UT 2019 tax liability;
    • 90% of UT 2020 tax due if you do not have a 2019 tax liability or a first time filer.
  • You have the following two options to file a UT tax extension:
    • Pay your UT income taxes online at Utah's Taxpayer Access Point.  If you pay online, you do not have to file a TC-546 prepayment coupon form.
    • Complete Form TC-546 and include a Check or Money Order.  Mail both to the address on Form TC-546.
    • You will still need to file your UT tax return either via eFile or by paper by Oct. 15, 2021.
  • Important: If you owe Utah and/or IRS income taxes and do not file an IRS and Utah tax return or extension by May 17, 2021, you will be subject to IRS and UT late filing penalties. Estimate IRS late filing, payment penalties. In addition, if you do not pay your taxes by May 17, 2021, 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 2020 Tax Returns is May 17, 2021. e-File a 2020 Tax Extension for free on eFile.com. Here are instructions on whether you should consider a Tax Extension or not.

The extended IRS/Utah eFile deadline is Oct. 15, 2021 - eFileIT*.  Or, if you plan to file or mail-in a Utah tax return on paper, the UT Mailing Addresses are listed below.

Utah State Tax Payment Options
You can select one of these payment options either after you have e-filed or filed your 2020 Utah Tax Return. Alternatively, you can pay Utah income taxes here prior to filing (e.g in the case of an extension). Plus, you can make online Utah tax estimate payments for next tax year. If you eFiled your taxes and pay online, you do not have to send in Utah paper forms (e.g. payer tax return, extension form, or tax estimate form). 
Go to the TAP Utah to submit your payment. Make sure to click "Make an e-Check payment" link and follow the on screen prompts.  Be sure to save a copy of your receipt for your records after submitting a payment.
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 TAP Utah site. When you're on the site, select the "Make a credit card payment" option, then follow the on-screen prompts to enter and submit your information (e.g. SSN, Tax Year, Form Type, Filing Status).
Use this payment option if you want to pay your tax payment via your credit or debit card. There is an additional convenience fee based on your total tax payment.
Check or Money Order with Form TC-547
Complete voucher Form TC-547 and attach it to your check or money order payable to "Utah State Tax Commission".  Mail them to the Form TC-547 address below.
Use this payment option if you wish to submit your payment via check or money order in the mail. 
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.
