Tax Filing and Payment Extension: COVID-19 Relief
The Department of Revenue is extending the filing and payment deadline for Hall income tax returns and, for certain taxpayers, the franchise and excise tax return from April 15, 2021 to May 17, 2021. This extension follows an announcement from the Internal Revenue Service extending the deadline for federal individual income tax returns to May 17. Under Tennessee law, the Commissioner of Revenue is authorized to extend the deadline for filing a return whenever the IRS extends a federal filing date for a specified group of taxpayers.
The extensions will automatically apply. No further action is required.
