Raleigh, North Carolina. The deadline to file calendar year North Carolina individual income tax returns is Monday, April 18, unless you request an extension. E-filed returns must be submitted electronically by midnight on April 18. For taxpayers filing on paper, returns must be postmarked by April 18.
The deadline to file and pay state income tax has been extended to April 18 because the state government is closed on Friday, April 15, to observe the Good Friday holiday.
A taxpayer who receives an automatic extension to file their individual federal income tax return will be granted an automatic extension to file their North Carolina individual income tax return if the individual certifies on their North Carolina return who received an automatic federal extension.
If a taxpayer is not granted an automatic federal extension, the taxpayer can still request a state extension to file their North Carolina individual income tax return by filing Form D-410 before midnight on April 18. However, the extension is for filing a return only and is not an extension of time to pay any tax that may be due.
A taxpayer who fails to pay the amount of tax due by April 18 may incur late payment penalties and will be charged interest at the legal rate. The late payment penalty will be waived for taxpayers who pay at least 90 percent of their tax liability through withholding, estimated tax payments or with Form D-410 before April 18.
