File an Extension

Deadline change due to the COVID-19 pandemic: The April 15, 2020, due date for filing the Vermont Individual Income Tax Return has been automatically extended. Tax returns will be considered timely if filed by July 15, 2020. Form IN-151, An Application for Extension of Time to File, is not required for return filings made by the July date. If you wish to extend the filing deadline to October 15, 2020, you must file Form IN-151 by July 15.

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.
