You're granted an automatic, six-month extension of time for filing your Montana income tax return. You do not have to apply for a federal extension in order to receive a Montana extension.
If you're required to make an extension payment, please use Montana Form IT .
Any extension of time to file your Montana income tax return is not an extension of time to pay your income tax liability. If you haven't paid your entire 2020 income tax liability by May 17, 2021, you aren't relieved of late payment penalties and interest on your outstanding Montana income tax liability.
