State Income Tax Returns, Dates, Refunds

Due to IRS and State policy, most state tax returns can only be e-Filed together with the IRS tax return - with the exception of California. This is not an eFile.com policy, but an IRS/State regulation which is based on data sharing between the IRS and the state(s). Having said that, you can prepare only state returrn(s) on eFile.com but not eFileIT by itself without also e-Filing the IRS return as well - with the exception of California.

Thus, here on eFile.com, you can prepare and eFile your 2020 IRS and State Taxes together. The IRS tax return filing deadline is April 15, 2021 and most state returns are due at the same time. Attention: the IRS recently extended the federal deadline from April 15, 2021, to May 17, 2021. Most states are following this or a similar deadline; for specific State Tax Return deadlines, click on the state(s) below.

Income Taxes by State

Not all state income tax returns and tax rates are created equally. For example, there are nine states which don't impose a state income tax: Alaska, Florida, Nevada, New Hampshire, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Washington, and Wyoming. New Hampshire and Tennessee, however, do tax investment income from taxable dividends and interest. Why worry about how to properly file your state return? If you prepare and eFile your state tax return(s) on eFile.com, you can be assured that your taxes will be done right.
