While April 15 would normally be Tax Day, the deadline to file individual and corporate taxes has been extended because of the coronavirus pandemic.  This year’s filing deadline is July 15.

But Bob Grennes, Commissioner of the Indiana Department of Revenue, says Hoosiers don’t have to wait until July.

“But in spite of those extensions, we advise all Hoosiers to file their tax returns as soon as possible, especially if you’re expecting a refund,” Grennes says.

Grennes says as of the end of March, more than two million Hoosiers have already filed state taxes.

IDOR says Hoosiers can still file for an extension, if the extra 90 days is not enough.  As with many state offices, in-person services are closed.  But Hoosiers can file for an extension online with either the federal government or the state.

And the IDOR says it can’t answer questions about federal coronavirus stimulus checks that have begun to be issued this week.  Those are sent out by the federal Department of Revenue.
