Taxpayers have two extra days to file their federal and state income tax returns this year.
The deadline to file and pay any tax due is April 17, rather than the traditional April 15 deadline.
The change is because April 15 falls on a Sunday this year, and Emancipation Day, a legal holiday in Washington, D.C., will be observed April 16, the New York State Department of Taxation and Finance said in a press release Tuesday.
New York taxpayers with adjusted gross household incomes of $66,000 or less in 2017 qualify to take advantage of user-friendly software available at Free File your income tax return.
If you don’t think you’ll be able meet the filing deadline, request an automatic extension of time to file. You must make full payment of the properly estimated tax balance due when you request your extension. For details, please see Apply for an extension of time
