State Filing Deadlines

With the IRS announcement late yesterday that taxpayers will have an extra day to file their 2017 tax returns, state tax agencies are beginning to follow. The following states have announced that they will allow taxpayers an extra day to file their state tax returns as well. The list will be updated throughout the day as we hear from additional states.

Idaho

Idaho extends income tax filing deadline through Wednesday, April 18

BOISE, IDAHO — April 18, 2018 — The Idaho State Tax Commission is providing taxpayers an extra day to file and pay their 2017 income taxes. Taxpayers have until the end of Wednesday, April 18 to file and pay their income taxes without penalty.

The IRS announced a one-day extension for filing federal returns due to problems with its e-filing system for much of the April 17 tax deadline. This also affected e-filing for Idaho returns. As a result, Idaho is following the extended federal deadline. The extended deadline applies to returns and payments filed by paper or electronically.

Taxpayers can get an automatic six-month extension to file their return if they make any required payments by the end of Wednesday.

The IRS encountered issues Tuesday morning with its online system. Taxpayers using paper to file and pay their taxes at the deadline were not affected by the system issue.

“Maryland taxpayers who were affected by the IRS’ website outage yesterday can rest assured that you have another day to file your taxes, as they needed federal tax return information to file their Maryland tax return in our system,” said Franchot. “Taxpayers can continue to use our iFile system without disruption.”
