When, Where and How to File Your North Carolina Return
For most taxpayers your return is due April 15th. If you properly file for
an extension with North Carolina, your return is due October 15th. If you are
a fiscal year filer, your return is due on the 15th day of the 4th month following
the end of the taxable year. If the due date falls on a Saturday or Sunday,
your return is due on or before the next business day.
Nonresident Aliens: Nonresident aliens are required to file returns at the same time they are required to file their federal returns.
When filing the current year return, be sure you use the current year's form.
You must attach a copy of the federal return if you have an out-of-state address.

Department of Revenue also accepts returns filed electronically. We do not offer
tele-file. If you owe taxes, mail your return and payment to the North Carolina

avoid the failure to file penalty. You may be eligible to enter into a payment
