Tax Extensions by States

State Tax

State Income Tax Extensions listed by State below. Most state tax extensions are due by April 15, 2021. If you do not owe taxes, many states grant automatic 6 month extension period. If you do owe taxes, paying state taxes online or via check, serves also as a state tax extension.

Let's be clear here: If you don't owe taxes, you don't need to file a tax extension! The question is, how do you know if you owe taxes or not without preparing a state tax return? If you "gestimate" this and you are certain you don't owe state income taxes, there is no need to file an IRS or state tax extension. If you owe taxes however, you should either prepare a return or pay your state taxes online. As a result this tax payment would serve as your extension.
