A maximum of seven months extension beyond the original due date of the corporate income tax return is allowed for Nebraska PARTNERSHIPS, ESTATES, AND TRUSTS.

Who may file for extension?

Any individual making a tentative tax payment and/or wanting more time to file a Nebraska income tax return, must file a Nebraska Application for Automatic Extension of Time, Form 4868N. The requirement to file Form 4868N is waived if the Nebraska tax return is e-filed through a paid tax preparer.

Married couples who file married, filing separately, who both want an extension of time, must each complete a separate Form 4868N. Blanket extensions are not granted. If a federal extension of time has been granted, the filing date for Form 1040N is automatically extended for the same period.

When you file your Nebraska income tax return, if not e-filing through a paid tax preparer, you must:
  • Send a copy of the Application for Automatic Extension of Time to File, Federal Form 4868; or
  • Attach an explanation that you received an automatic federal extension electronically; and include your federal confirmation number.
Taxpayers using an online software product or NebFile (the Department's free online e-filing alternative) should mail the above information to the Nebraska Department of Revenue, PO Box 94818, Lincoln, Nebraska 68509-4818, after filing. Paper filers must attach the extension information to the paper return.

Tell me about the Payment methods?

Although an approved extension of time extends the date for filing the return, interest is due from the original due date of the return to the date the tax is paid. A tentative tax payment will stop interest from accruing on the paid amount. This amount should be claimed as a credit on line 29, estimated payments of Form 1040N, when the return is filed. You can use the Department's e-pay system to make your tentative tax payment. It's fast, secure, and easy.

WIll I be notified if the extension is denied to me?

Yes. The taxpayer will be notified if the requested Nebraska extension is denied. All approved extension requests will be granted an automatic six-month filing extension beyond the original due date. Notification will only be sent when the extension application is not granted.
