New York State Individual Tax Filing Deadline Extended to May 17, 2021

The Commissioner of the New York State Department of Taxation and Finance has extended the 2020 due date for individual income tax returns, and the related tax payments from April 15, 2021 to May 17, 2021. The New York 2020 individual tax deadline is now the same as the federal IRS deadline.

2020 individual tax returns originally due on April 15, 2021, and related payments of tax will not be subject to interest or penalties if filed and paid by May 17, 2021.
