Tax Deadline Looms
Friday, April 12, 2019

The Indiana Department of Revenue (DOR) wants to remind Hoosiers the 2019 individual tax filing deadline is Monday, April 15, 2019. The upcoming weekend allows customers time to file both electronically and through paper forms.

Paper tax returns require a postmarked date of no later than April 15, 2019 to be considered on time. Electronic filing can be submitted online any time before April 16, including through the Indiana freefile program (INfreefile).

Still not going to be able to file by the deadline? File an extension with DOR or the Internal Revenue Service (IRS). If the federal extension is granted, an individual automatically has an extension with Indiana. The extension pushes the tax filing deadline back to Oct.15, 2019 for federal returns and Nov.14, 2019 for state returns.

Remember if an extension is granted, it only extends the time a customer has to file, not the amount of time to pay taxes owed. Customers are still required to pay taxes owed by April 15, 2019 to avoid penalties and fees.
