Tax Day is exactly one month away, July 15, and an estimated 500,000 Hoosiers still need to file their individual income taxes, according to the Indiana Department of Revenue.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the individual income tax season was extended from the traditional April 15 deadline to July 15 to allow customers more time to file and pay taxes owed. If an individual owes taxes, penalties and interest can be avoided by paying 90% of the tax owed by the July 15 deadline.
Additionally, individual estimated payments with deadlines of April 15 or June 15 are due July 15.
Still need to file? The free file program, INfreefile, is still available to qualifying individuals to file their individual income taxes for free. If an individual’s adjusted gross income was $69,000 or less in 2019, they may be eligible to use the free online software from Department of Revenue-certified vendors. Information is available at freefile.dor.in.gov. A full list of tips on filing can be found at dor.in.gov/5804.htm.
