Tax deadline extended

In email today from Indiana Department of Revenue, dor@subscriptions.in.gov

Individuals and businesses with a filing or payment due date of April 17 will now have until midnight on Wednesday, April 18 to file electronically. Taxpayers do not need to do anything to receive this extra time.

The IRS encountered system issues Tuesday morning. Throughout the system outage, taxpayers were still able to file their tax returns electronically through their software providers and Indiana freefile. Taxpayers using paper to file and pay their taxes at the deadline were not affected by the system issue.

Both the IRS and DOR advise taxpayers to continue to file their taxes –electronically or paper – if they have not already done so.
