Questions & Answers

Does my state accept my federal extension too?

Most states allow you an extension to file your state return without needing to file anything other than the federal extension. Check your state to see what they require.

To file a federal extension: Menu Path: Personal > 2021 Extension > Start your 2021 Extension

Important: An extension of time to file your tax return does NOT mean you have an extension of time to pay your tax due. If you owe taxes, be sure to make an estimated tax payment before the April 18, 2022 payment deadline, even if you don't file your return until October 17, 2022.
