(Indianapolis, IN) - The Indiana Department of Revenue said it is extending the deadlines for filing individual and corporate tax returns by three months because of the COVID-19 outbreak.
“Since COVID-19 is impacting so many, in addition to the payment extensions announcement by the IRS, we are also extending the associated Indiana tax return filing deadlines," DOR Commissioner Bob Grennes said.
The state's moves align with the federal Internal Revenue Service's announcement tax payment and filing extensions for individual and corporate returns.
The DOR's announcement occurred as Gov. Eric Holcomb announced new policies and restrictions Thursday — as well as a surge in claims for unemployment insurance — because of the coronavirus pandemic.
Now, Indiana residents will have until July 15, 2020, to pay their individual tax returns and payments, along with estimated payments, that were originally due by April 15.
Returns that will be covered by the Indiana filing deadline extension are the IT-40, IT-40PNR, IT-40RNR, IT-40ES, ES-40 and SC-40.
