Vermont Income Taxes and VT State Tax Forms

Vermont
"The Green Mountain State"

Vermont State Income Tax Return forms for Tax Year 2018 (Jan. 1 - Dec. 31, 2018) can be e-Filed together with an IRS Income Tax Return until October 15, 2019. In January 2020, you can e-File Tax Year 2019.

eFile.com makes it easy for you to e-file your IRS and Vermont 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. Therefore, you cannot e-File a Vermont Tax Return anywhere - not just eFile.com - without also e-filing the associated IRS Tax Return. However, please read on for good news. 

Find detailed instructions on how you can only prepare and mail in - not eFile - a Vermont 2018 Tax Return - here via eFile.com. However, you must download/print and sign the forms and mail them to the Tax Agency.

Instructions on how you can ONLY prepare and file State Income Tax Return(s).

Automatic Vermont Tax Extension

For Tax Year 2018 you can e-File an IRS Tax Extension by April 15, 2019 for free on eFile.com (instructions on whether you should consider a Tax Extension or not). 

If you are certain that you cannot file your Vermont 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 Vermont will not accept the federal extension form as an extension for your Vermont tax return. However, if you expect to owe income taxes, you should submit your payment with payment voucher Form IN-151. If you efiled your return and are making a payment by check or money order, you must complete a Form IN-151 on eFile.com. If you are making a payment by credit card, a Form IN-151 is not needed. If you are making an automatic extension payment, you also must use Form IN-151 unless it is made electronically. Use eFile.com and prepare an Vermont tax return to find out what your Vermont state income tax payment will be.
