What Form does the state of New York require to apply for an extension?

Q

Individuals in New York need to complete the State’s request for free using online service for requesting an Extension request. The state itself grants a 6-month extension of time to file their personal income tax return with the state.

When is the deadline to file an extension Form with the state of New York?

Q

New York State individual tax extension forms must be filed on or before the 17th day of the 5th month after the tax year ends (May 17 for calendar year filers).

How do I pay my balance due along with the extension Form?

Q

If you owe New York state taxes, you must pay your tax due by the regular due date, or you will be charged with penalties and interest.

You must make full payment of the properly estimated tax balance due when you request your extension of time to file.
