Peter Beach | March 25, 2021

Massachusetts, Maine, and Vermont have extended the filing and payment deadlines for their 2020 state personal income tax returns as described below. As of the date of this posting, the New Hampshire Department of Revenue Administration’s website is still silent regarding extensions of tax filing and payment deadlines, indicating that all regular deadlines are still in place.

Massachusetts: The time for individuals to file and pay 2020 returns and taxes otherwise due April 15, 2021, has been extended to May 17, 2021. The Massachusetts Department of Revenue’s statement on the extension does not mention the April 15 due date for estimated tax payments, effectively leaving the April 15, 2021, due date in place, consistent with IRS guidance on federal estimated tax payments.

Maine: The filing and payment deadline for Maine 2020 individual income taxes is extended from April 15, 2021, to May 17, 2021; estimated tax payments due on April 15 are still due on that date.

Vermont: As we previously reported, the Vermont Department of Revenue website states Vermont 2020 personal income tax returns are due on May 17 and that April 15 estimated tax payments are still due on April 15, 2021.
