In response to the Internal Revenue Service (“IRS”) delaying the April 15th deadline for individuals’ federal income tax returns and payments to May 17, 2021 (see our Memorandum here) certain states have begun to follow suit.

New York State:

The New York State Tax Commissioner has extended the due date for New York State personal income tax returns, and related tax payments, for the 2020 tax year from April 15, 2021, to May 17, 2021. The relief does not apply to estimated tax payments for the 2021 tax year that are due on April 15, 2021. These payments are still due on April 15, 2021.
