Due Date for 2020 individual tax returns has been changed from April 15, 2021 to May 17, 2021. Automatic (no questions asked) six month extensions until October 15, 2021, are available by filing Form 4868 no later than May 17, 2021. Extensions do not cover potential tax liabilities. Any potential taxes owed for 2020 should be paid by the delayed due date of the return (May 17, 2021) to insure no penalties or interest charges.

The IRS will begin processing 2020 tax returns on February 12, 2021.  Taxpayers claiming EITC and ACTC  may experience delays in receiving refunds. 


Due Date for 2020 Corporate, S-Corporation, and Partnership tax returns with calendar year reporting is March 15, 2021.  Automatic (no questions asked) six month extensions are available by filing Form 7004. Extensions do not cover potential tax liabilities. Any potential taxes owed should be paid by the original due date of the return to insure no penalties or interest charges.


***********************

State tax returns generally have the same due dates, but in some instances State tax returns may have different due dates and extension periods. 

North Carolina Dept of Revenue IS one of the many States that is following the Federal decision and has changed their Individual filing due date to May 17, 2021.
