General Instructions

The New York State Department of Taxation and Finance now uses an online system exclusively to submit requests for a six-month extension of time to file Form IT-201, Resident Income Tax Return, or Form IT-203, Nonresident and Part-Year resident Income Tax Return. The extension request must be made electronically before April 15, 2014.

You must request the extension of time to file on or before the due date of your return. Request your extension online.

The online and e-file options provide you with a confirmation that your extension request has been received.

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