Federal, state tax deadline extended

Thursday, April 1, 2021

Oregon Department of Revenue is joining the IRS and extending the income tax filing deadline for 2020 from April 15 to May 17.

Individual taxpayers also can postpone state income tax payments for the 2020 tax year that were due on April 15 to May 17 without penalties and interest, regardless of the amount owed. The postponement applies to individual taxpayers, including individuals who pay self-employment tax. Penalties and interest will begin to accrue on any remaining unpaid balances beginning May 18.

Taxpayers don’t need to file any forms or call the state to qualify for the extension. Those who need additional time to file beyond the May 17 deadline can request a filing extension.

To get tax forms, check the status of a refund, or make payments, visit or call 800-356-4222.
