Fiscal year filers and individuals living outside the U.S.

Fiscal year filers should contact us to request an extension of time to file.

If you live outside the U.S., you aren't required to file an extension if you qualify for the automatic federal two-month filing and payment extension for the following reasons:

  • you're a U.S. resident and live outside the U.S., and your main place of business or post of duty is outside the U.S. and Puerto Rico; or,
  • You're in the military service outside the U.S. or Puerto Rico when your 2012 return is due; therefore, you are entitled to a similar two-month extension for your New York State return and to pay your tax.

Attach a statement to your return explaining that you qualify for the federal automatic two-month extension. Contact us to get an additional four-month extension before the end of the two-month extension. For more information, see Information for Military Personnel & Veterans.
