State Tax Returns
When do you have to file your state return? Keep in mind, your federal tax return isn’t due until May 17th, but your state tax return might be due before then. Because you might need information from your federal return for your state return, filing your federal return sooner might be of utmost importance right now.
This also depends on where you live. As of right now only Hawaii, New Hampshire and Oklahoma have not extended their tax return filing deadline. So, how else would you calculate the taxes you owe if you don’t have the information from your federal return?
Because of all of this, the May 17th deadline may not apply to you at all. Keep that in mind and don’t let this put you into murky waters with the IRS.
