Did Hawaii extend their state filing and payment deadline?

After careful consideration, the Hawaii Department of Taxation has decided not to extend the tax year 2020 filing deadline. Taxpayers must file their returns by April 20, 2021.

While the law requires taxpayers to file by April 20, taxpayers are granted an automatic 6-month extension (no form is required to request the extension) to file the return through October 20, 2021 if one of these two conditions is met:

  1. The taxpayer is due a refund, or
  2. The taxpayer pays the properly estimated tax amount owed by April 20, 2021. Taxpayers who are not able to pay the properly estimated tax amount owed should pay as much as they can to avoid additional interest and penalties.
