HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) — Connecticut has extended the deadline for filing personal state income tax returns to July 15 because of the coronavirus outbreak.
The Department of Revenue Services said Saturday the 90-day extension also applies to tax payments, including ones estimated for the first and second quarters of 2020.
The U.S. Internal Revenue Service on Friday extended the deadline for federal income tax filings and payments to July 15.
Initially, only the payment due date was delayed past the traditional April 15 deadline. The Treasury later announced that it would also grant a 90-day extension for filing federal taxes as well. Taxpayers who are facing difficulty filing by the new deadline still have the option to request an extension.
The IRS said that the deferment applies to all taxpayers, including individuals, trusts and estates, corporations and other non-corporate tax filers as well as those who pay self-employment tax.
During this unprecedented delay, taxpayers will not be subject to interest or penalty payments, regardless of how much they owe.
