The Indiana Department of Revenue does not require you to file a request for additional time. Indiana grants an automatic extension until June 18 to file your tax return. Indiana will accept the federal extension date, plus allow an additional 30 days. However, to avoid penalties and interest, you must pay 90% of your current year tax liability by April 18, 2016. If you are unable to pay, the extension is deemed not valid and both penalty and interest will be charged on the balance due.

I need more time to file my taxes and I think I owe tax to the state. What Should I do?

You may need to file an extension of time to file. You can do this by filing Indiana's extension Form IT-9. The Application for Automatic Extension of Time to File (Form IT-9) is used to obtain an automatic 60-day extension of time to file an Indiana resident or nonresident income tax return (Indiana Forms IT-40, IT-40PNR, and IT-40 RNR). Any taxpayer who wishes to request an extension of time to file must complete and file Form IT-9 on or before the original due date of the Indiana individual income tax return. If an application for extension is filed, at least 90 percent of the state and/or county tax due for the entire tax year must have been paid by the taxpayer and/or withheld by the taxpayer's employer.

What is Form IT-9?

The payment made with Form IT-9 should be claimed as an estimated tax payment at the time of filing Form IT-40, IT-40PNR, or IT-40 RNR. This is only an extension of time for filing the taxpayer's return. This is not an extension of time to pay any state and/or county tax due.

If the taxpayer has a valid federal extension, Form 4868, and 90 percent of the state and/or county tax due for the tax period has been paid, the taxpayer automatically has an extension with Indiana and does not need to file Form IT-9. The Indiana Department of Revenue will accept the federal extension if a copy is attached to the taxpayer's return at the time of filing. The taxpayer will have 30 days beyond the federal extension period in which to file his Indiana return, subject to the provisions of IC 6-8.1-6. For example, if federal extension Form 4868 extends the taxpayer's federal filing date to October 17, the taxpayer's Indiana filing date automatically becomes November 15.

If the taxpayer does not have a federal extension, he is required to file Form IT-9, even if there is no tax due on his Indiana individual income tax return. If the taxpayer is due a refund or does not expect to owe any tax when the tax return is filed and is unable to file by the due date, generally April 18, 2016, the taxpayer will still need to file for an extension by completing Form IT-9, Part 2: Nonpayment Information. Form IT-9 extends the taxpayer's Indiana filing time 60 days, subject to the provisions of IC 6-8.1-6.
