The Delaware Division of Revenue announced that the deadline for taxpayers to file their 2019 Delaware personal income tax returns has been extended to July 15.
The decision comes as a response to the coronavirus crisis.
The Division of Revenue and the Internal Revenue Service remain open, and taxpayers are encouraged to continue to file their state and federal returns electronically or by mail.
DOR’s public service windows are currently closed, but staff are available to respond to taxpayer questions by e-mail. Inquiries may be sent to any of the email addresses listed on our website. Staff of the revenue unit will respond by e-mail or phone.
Under Delaware law, the filing deadline for corporate income taxes is tied to the federal income tax due date which was recently extended to July 15, 2020.
The Director of the Division of Revenue has additional authority to grant reasonable extensions for other tax filings deemed to be appropriate.
Under a Technical Information Memorandum Delaware has also extended income tax filing deadlines for corporate final, corporate tentative, estimated personal income taxes, and fiduciary income taxes due in April to July 15. All other returns remain due without extension.
Individuals who are unable to meet the July 15 filing deadline may file an extension request online on or before July 15 at, by email to DOR_PublicService@delaware.gov, or through their tax preparer.
Taxpayers who have an outstanding balance and need assistance can contact DOR_Collections@delaware.gov. For additional information and updates about DOR’s response to the COVID-19 crisis, please visit the division’s website.
