The Federal Government announced on Saturday that the April 15th tax filing deadline has been extended to July 15th, without penalty.
Governor Parson also announced Missouri’s tax deadline has been extended, also to July 15th.
Payment relief for individuals and corporations: This payment relief applies to all individual income tax returns, income tax returns filed by C Corporations, and income tax returns filed by trusts or estates. The Department of Revenue will automatically provide this relief, so filers do not need to take any additional steps to qualify.
This relief for individuals and corporations will also include estimated tax payments for tax year 2020 that are due on April 15, 2020.
Penalties and interest will begin to accrue on any remaining unpaid balances as of July 16, 2020. Individuals and corporations that file their return or request an extension of time to file by July 15, 2020, will automatically avoid interest and penalties on the tax paid by July 15.
The State of Missouri has added extensions for vehicle registration and drivers license that would expire in March or April.
For vehicle registration or license plates that expire in March or April, the Missouri Department of Revenue is allowing an automatic two-month extension. There will be no late penalty for Title Applications through the end of April.
For Drivers License, nondriver licenses and non-commercial instruction permits with original expiration dates of March 1, 2020, through April 30, 2020, have been granted an automatic 60-day extension.
The approved extension does not waive the mandatory retesting requirement for persons who have allowed their license to expire for more than 184 days. Those that received notice to complete additional testing as part of a medical review program requirement may be granted an additional 60 days to comply with such requirements.
