State Tax Deadlines 2021 | Canopy
As we all heard yesterday, the federal government has extended the tax deadline to May 17 as it pertains to federal income taxes with the exception of Louisiana, Oklahoma, and Texas residents who were granted until June 15 due to the impact of winter storms this February. However, each state is left to make their own decision when it comes to state income tax deadlines. And while taxpayers can still request an extension and wait to file until October 15, states do not necessarily abide by the same extension dates as the federal government, so tax preparers should be aware of those clients who are dragging their feet. Filing early and electronically is the best chance for them to receive their refund via direct deposit and as soon as possible.
