Due to recent events, the federal government extended the deadline to file and pay your 2019 personal income taxes from April 15 to July 15 — which includes the first- and second-quarter estimated tax payments for the 2020 tax year. But have your state taxes also been extended?
For starters, each state individually decides whether or not to extend its deadlines. And while many states have delayed their filing and payment deadlines to coincide with the federal requirements, not all have.
Find out if your state has adjusted its tax deadline and when you're expected to file and pay below.

Taxpayers that owed $10,000 or more in taxes in 2018 must file or pay by April 15.
Tennessee's Hall income tax deadline is extended until July 15. Tennessee does not require estimated tax payments for the Hall income tax.
