In the wake of the coronavirus pandemic, Hoosiers will have an additional three months to file their state and federal taxes. Originally set for April 15, the deadline to file has been extended to July 15.
This extension applies to both individuals and corporations, and Indiana’s Department of Revenue offers income tax forms for individuals and businesses with the updated corresponding submission date. If Hoosiers are needing extra time to file state returns, an extension is available and instructions can be found here. For federal returns, taxpayers can defer payments without penalties or interest, no matter the amount owed. Indiana will automatically extend the state deadline for returns if an individual requests a federal extension.
There is no action required for Hoosiers to qualify for the July 15 deadline extension. The IRS recommends taxpayers file as soon as possible, especially if individuals are eligible for a refund, and to file electronically.
If taxpayers have questions, the DOR is available and ready to assist by phone at 317-232-2240 or by email using this online form. For questions about corporate taxes, call 317-232-0129. At this time, in-person services are temporarily suspended.
