The Division of Revenue would like to remind Delawareans who have not yet filed their tax returns that the deadlines are quickly approaching. Delaware corporate income tax returns are due on or before April 17, and the personal income tax deadline is April 30.
Taxpayers who do not file by the deadline because they have a balance due may face additional interest and penalties, which increases the total amount owed. Filing by the deadline will allow you to avoid penalties, even if you are unable to pay all or some of your taxes by the deadline. Payment arrangements can be made by calling (302) 577-8785. If you can’t file your return by the deadline, you can request an extension of time to file – but remember, this is not an extension of time to pay.
To speed the process, take advantage of electronic filing, which will make filing your taxes both accurate and easy. Personal tax filing assistance is also available for individuals and families with disabilities, or households that meet certain income requirements. Visit de.gov/taxhelp for more information.
