General Instructions

The Indiana Department of Revenue requires that you file for an extension of time to file if you are required to file a 2014 Indiana individual income tax return, but cannot file by April 15, 2015. Whether you owe additional tax, are due a refund or are breaking even, you still need to file for an extension. You can do this one of two ways:

  • If you have a valid federal extension, Form 4868, you automatically have an extension with Indiana and do not need to file Form IT-9. The federal extension will extend your Indiana filing time to Nov. 17, 2015.
  • If you do not have a federal extension, complete Form IT-9. This will extend your time to file to June 16, 2015.

 

An extension to file your return is not an extension of time to pay your taxes.

If you owe taxes, payment must be made by April 15, 2015. To avoid an extension underpayment penalty you must pay at least 90% of the tax due by April 15, 2015. This will extend your time to file to June 16, 2014. The extension allows additional time to complete and file your income tax return; however, the extension does not provide additional time to pay the amount of tax owed.

Find out if you owe using the Worksheet on Form IT-9.
