When Are Federal And State Tax Forms Due?
Federal income tax forms for the calendar year 2014 are due April 15, 2015. For most income tax filers, both federal and state income tax forms must be post marked by this filing due date to avoid penalties and late fees.
Some state income tax forms are not due until later, April 30, 2015, for example. Most state income tax forms will refer to the income, adjustments, and credit amounts entered onto your federal income tax forms. For this reason, it's important that you prepare your federal IRS income tax forms in advance of trying to prepare your state income tax forms.
What happens if you miss the federal or state filing deadline? If you are required to file and owe money to the IRS or state DOR, you are expected to mail in an extension of time to file request form and make an estimated payment prior to the filing due date. Then, you can send in your income tax forms a bit later with interest and possibly penalty charges forthcoming. Once the IRS or DOR has processed your income tax return, you can request a payment schedule from them by mail-in form or by phone if necessary.
Prior Year Form 1040, Form 1040A, Form 1040EZ
Didn't get around to filing your 2012 or 2013 income tax forms? The IRS will not charge you a failure to file penalty if you are due an income tax refund from a prior year. However, if you try to file and claim a refund 3 years after its filing due date, the IRS will not pay you the money. In other words, you have 3 years to claim an income tax refund. If you still have your W2 or 1099 forms from 2012 and 2013 lying around, go ahead and claim your money from the IRS.
The IRS will however charge you a failure to file penalty plus interest if you file late and owe the IRS money. There is no statute of limitations for assessing and collecting income tax if no return has been filed. As we mentioned previously, the IRS expects to receive an extension of time to file request form and an estimated income tax payment prior to each filing due date.
