Extend Your Tax Filing Deadline

(INDIANAPOLIS) - The individual income tax filing deadline of April 15 is just a few days away. If taxpayers can't meet this deadline, there are two options to get additional time to file.

Taxpayers can submit an extension of time to file form to either Indiana or the IRS. This gives taxpayers until November 16 to gather documents and file their state returns. However, taxpayers still must pay any taxes owed by April 15 and are liable for interest accrued on any unpaid amount.

The IRS offers a federal extension of time to file (IRS Form 4868). If taxpayers file an IRS extension, they do not need a separate extension for Indiana.

Indiana Form IT-9 can be filed if a taxpayer does not have a federal extension.

The form must be mailed to the department and postmarked by April 15.

Those requesting an extension need to determine if they owe any state tax. To avoid penalty, taxpayers should pay at least 90 percent of the tax due when filing for the extension.

Penalties will be waived if taxpayers file and pay the remaining balance by the extension date.

Filing taxes electronically is the fastest and easiest way to ensure returns are processed on time. Two million taxpayers qualify to use INfreefile, the department's free filing program. Visit for more information.

If you need last-minute assistance or have questions about your return, call the department at (317) 232-2240. For more information about this year's tax season, please visit
