New Jersey Extends Tax Filing Deadline to Reflect Federal May 17 Deadline

New Jersey is extending its income tax filing deadline to May 17th to reflect the federal tax filing deadline, which was extended last Wednesday, Governor Murphy announced. 

New Jersey officials said they will soon release “formal guidance” on the tax filing deadline extension. They noted that, like the federal deadline extension, New Jerseyans will not have to file to request an extension until May 17th, as that date is now the official state filing deadline for 2020 taxes. However, they noted that the extended deadline applies only to individual taxpayers, but estimated tax payments for the first quarter of 2021 will still be due on April 15th.

“As we continue the arduous job of emerging from this pandemic, we are extending this relief to taxpayers in what we know is a very difficult time,” Governor Murphy said. “Our hope is that the extension gives taxpayers with difficult circumstances, including filings made more complicated by various relief programs and employment changes, the extra time they may need.”
