Apply for an extension of time to file an income tax return

Were you or your business affected by the winter storms in December of 2022 in Erie, Genesee, Niagara, St. Lawrence, or Suffolk Counties?

If you were unable to file and pay your taxes on time due to this disaster, you should still file as soon as possible. If you need filing resources or more information, please contact us.

If you can't file on time, you can request an automatic extension of time to file the following forms:

  • Form IT-201, Resident Income Tax Return
  • Form IT-203, Nonresident and Part-Year Resident Income Tax Return
  • Form IT-203-GR, Group Return for Nonresident Partners (Note: Group agents must enter the special identification number assigned to the partnership—that is, group ID 80081XXXXin the Full Social Security number field.)
  • Form IT-204, Partnership Return
  • Form IT-205, Fiduciary Income Tax Return

When to file

You must file your extension request on or before the filing deadline of your return.

You may no longer get an extension of time to file a 2022 income tax return if your original filing due date was March 15, 2023, or April 18, 2023.

However, taxpayers with special filing deadlines may be able to get an extension of time to file their 2022 income tax returns.

An extension request filed after the filing deadline for your return will be invalid.
