Tax Procrastinators Have Another Reason to Rejoice

Tax filing form

The Ohio Department of Taxation has delayed the deadline for filing income taxes and making payments to May 17.

Ohioans will have more time to get their state taxes done this year. The deadline for filing and paying those has been delayed.

April 15 is no longer the deadline for filing taxes. The Ohio Department of Taxation has moved the tax filing and payment deadline to May 17 to provide relief to people affected by public safety measures related to the pandemic. 

Many state and regional taxes that are also due April 15 will be extended, if they are tied to the state’s tax schedule. The state’s move comes after the Internal Revenue Service announced it was moving its tax filing deadline to May also.
