Last Updated: March 20, 2020 at 6:19 p.m.

Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin announced on Friday, March 20, 2020 that the federal filing deadline was being moved to July 15, 2020 due to the COVID-19 outbreak. State departments of revenue are expected to follow suit, so we have begun building a list of affected state individual income tax return deadlines. We will update this list as we receive new information.

Note: We are including quotes from the departments of revenue that have announced the intention of extending the deadline, but have not yet published an official date. Those states that do not have a firm date will include an “expected individual income tax deadline.”
