New Jersey will follow the actions of the IRS and automatically extend the 2020 Income Tax filing due date for individuals from April 15, 2021, until May 17, 2021.
This extension includes any tax payments due with a return.
Requests for an additional extension to file a return are also due by May 17, 2021, and will be based on the original due date of the return. Returns under extension must be filed by October 15, 2021.
This extension does not include first quarter estimated payments, which are still due by April 15, 2021.
