Guidance issued on US State Tax Deadlines

The main US tax deadline has been pushed back to July 15 – find out how this affects your state return deadline

Published on March 24, 2020

Last week, it was confirmed that the US Tax Deadline was being postponed until July 15 for all taxpayers, including US Citizens residing overseas. How this affects state Tax returns depends on which State you live in. Evan White, Expat Tax Services Regional Manager at H&R Block, explains that "The IRS extension until July 15 applies to US Federal tax returns. However, state filing deadlines will vary by state."

To help figure out the right deadlines and circumstances for your State, H&R Block have published a useful guide. Introducing the guide, the firm says that "Federal and state tax returns are interconnected with information flowing from the federal return to the state return. So, the news of the Treasury Department announcing a 90-day extension for paying money owed on your federal tax bill may have you wondering what your state is doing in response to the coronavirus pandemic. Some states are conforming to the federal changes, but other states are adjusting tax deadlines in different ways. To help you understand the changes, we rounded up the state tax deadline changes in response to the coronavirus pandemic."

Links to the firm's reference guides for individual tax returns, business returns and for estates/trusts can be found by going to www.hrblock.com/tax-center/filing/states/coronavirus-filing-updates

H&R Block also have a useful Q&A on their website on how the response to coronavirus is affecting US Tax returns, check out www.hrblock.com/tax-center/irs/deadlines-and-extensions/coronavirus-taxes-expats
