Vermont allows taxpayers an extension of six (6) months to file their Form IN-111, Vermont Individual Income Tax Return, but they must submit an application first. Taxpayers may file online through myVTax or submit Form IN-151, Application for Extension of Time to File Form IN-111, by the April due date.
The extension allows additional time to file, but it does not extend the time to pay any tax due. If you owe additional tax, you must pay the amount due by the April filing deadline even if you file an extension.
Act 175 (H.954) of 2020 allows for automatic extension of the Vermont income tax filing deadline for both individual and corporate taxpayers upon extension at the federal level and gives corporations one additional month to file.
