What should you do if you cannot file your Indiana individual income tax return by the due date? Here's what you need to know:
2023 Due Date
The due date to file your 2022 Indiana individual income tax return is April 18, 2023. If you don’t expect to be able to file your state tax return by that deadline, you can request an extension of time to file prior to the due date.
An Extension Request is NOT a Request to Extend Payment Deadline
Requesting an extension of time to file does not extend the deadline for paying any tax due.
Federal Extension versus State Extension
If you have a federal extension of time to file, you automatically have an extension of time to file with Indiana.
If you DO NOT have a federal extension of time to file and you cannot file your Indiana individual income tax return by April 18, 2023, you can request an extension with DOR prior to the deadline.
What Happens After Submitting an Extension of Time to File Request?
After an extension of time to file request has been submitted, you have until Nov. 15, 2023, to file your 2022 Indiana state tax return and pay any outstanding balance due. Interest will be added to any amount owed after April 18, 2023, but the penalty will be waived if both of the following conditions are met:
- You pay at least 90% of the tax expected to be owed by the original April 18, 2023, due date, and
- The remaining balance due (including interest) is paid in full no later than Nov. 15, 2023.
How to Submit an Extension Request
There are two options to submit a request for an extension of time to file with DOR:
- Electronically via INTIME: Instructions are available to guide you through the process of requesting an extension of time to file electronically via INTIME no later than April 18, 2023.
- By Postal Service: Complete and file an Application for Extension of Time to File (Form IT-9)* by mail on or before April 18, 2023. The form and any payment should be mailed to:
Indiana Department of Revenue
P.O. Box 6117
Indianapolis, IN 46206-6117
Extensions for Military Personnel
Active Duty: Military personnel on active duty outside of the U.S. and Puerto Rico will be allowed an automatic 60-day extension.
