State Individual Income Tax Returns Due April 18

Date: February 1, 2011

Taxpayers across the nation will have until April 18, 2011, to file 2010 federal returns, extensions, and payments that ordinarily would be due April 15, 2011. The extra time is provided because April 15 falls on Emancipation day, a legal holiday in the District of Columbia.

For individual income tax purposes, North Carolina will follow the April 18 extended filing date and consider any returns and payments that would have been due on April 15 as filed on time if they are filed and paid by April 18. The extended deadline applies to the following State forms and payments:

  • 2010 State individual income tax returns, whether filed electronically or on paper
  • First quarter 2011 individual estimated income tax payments
  • Partnerships
  • Estates and Trusts
  • Applications for extension for any of the above tax forms

The extended deadline does not apply to corporations that file franchise and corporate income tax returns due on April 15, 2011, or to first quarter 2011 corporate estimated income tax payments.
