General Instructions

The North Carolina Department of Revenue grants an automatic six-month extension of time to file until October 15, 2014 with the submission of Form D-410. You are required to file for an extension whether you owe additional taxes or are expecting a refund. North Carolina does not accept any federal extension forms in lieu of the North Carolina extension form.

An extension to file your return is not an extension of time to pay your taxes.

If You Owe

If you owe taxes, you must pay the full amount due on or before April 15, 2014 or a 10% late payment penalty and interest charge will be incurred. If your return is completed by the original due date but you are unable to pay the tax, you should not request an extension. File your return by April 15, 2014 and pay as much as you can in order to minimize the penalty and interest.

Pay Online

Pay your taxes online at North Carolina Department of Revenue’s Electronic Services. You may pay directly from your checking or savings account, or by credit/debit card (MasterCard or Visa). There is no fee when paying with your checking or savings account.

You can also pay your taxes online at Official Payments Corporation. Visa, MasterCard, Discover Network, and American Express credit and debit cards, and other forms of payment, such as Bill Me Later® are accepted. To make a debit card payment you can use a MasterCard or Visa Debit Card or any debit card with Nyce, Pulse or Star logos. If you choose this payment method, be sure to keep the confirmation number as proof of payment for your records.

There is a convenience fee for this service which is paid directly to the company. The amount of the fee is based on the amount of your payment.

Pay by Phone

Pay your taxes by phone by calling Official Payments toll-free at 1-800-272-9829. This automated service is available 24 hours, 7 days a week. At the end of your call you will be given a confirmation number. Save this as proof of payment for your records.

Pay by Mail

Along with the extension form, send a check or money order in the amount of the estimated tax due made payable to North Carolina Department of Revenue. Use only blue or black ink. Do not attach your payment to the form. Mail to:
North Carolina Department of Revenue
PO Box 25000
Raleigh, NC 27640-0635

Penalty and Interest Charges on Tax Owed

A late filing penalty of 5% per month with a maximum of 25% will be added if you do not file your income tax return by the end of the extension period. Filing the Form D-410 does not extend your time to pay the tax. If you do not pay the amount due by the original due date, a 10% late payment penalty plus interest will apply on the remaining balance due if the tax paid by the due date of the return is less than 90% of the total amount of tax due. If the 90% rule is met, any remaining balance due, including interest, must be paid with the income tax return by the extended due date to avoid the late payment penalty.

If you do not file for an extension, you are subject to both the 5% per month late filing penalty and 10% late payment penalty on the remaining tax due.

If You Do Not Owe

Even if you do not expect to owe additional tax, you must still apply for an extension and file the return by the extended due date for the return to be considered timely filed. You do not have to explain why you are asking for the extension.
