File Your Taxes Overview

The Taxation and Revenue Department (TRD) encourages you to file electronically whenever you can.

Electronic filing is safe and secure, and it offers the fastest service for a refund. Access online filing to file over the internet at no charge (except for payments made by credit card). You may choose to file electronically through your tax preparer or by using approved software on a personal computer. Individuals who both file and pay their income tax electronically using our website, a personal computer or a tax professional have an extended filing deadline of April 30. If April 30th is on a Saturday, Sunday or legal state or national holiday, the due date is the next business day.

The Department offers two ways to file a return electronically, both allowing you to file either a refund return or a tax-due return. File electronic returns through the Department’s internet website or the Federal/State Filing Program. Certain restrictions on who may file and the types of returns eligible for electronic filing depend upon the electronic filing program used by the Taxation and Revenue Department and Internal Revenue Service websites contain information about the electronic filing options.

You may pay taxes over the internet with Visa, MasterCard, Discover or American Express cards. A convenience fee covers the costs that the companies bill the state when a credit card is used. There is no charge if you pay by electronic check. An electronic check authorizes the Department to debit a checking account in the amount and on the date specified.
