General Instructions

The Vermont Department of Taxes requires that you file for an extension whether or not you owe additional taxes at this time. To receive an automatic six-month extension of time to file your Vermont income tax return, you must file either VT Form IN-151 or a copy of the federal extension return by the original due date of the return.

An extension to file your return is not an extension of time to pay your taxes, and avoids a late filing penalty. If tax is due, interest and late payment penalty accrue from the original due date of the return to the date of payment.

Note: An extension of time to file the VT individual income tax return does not apply to Homestead Declaration and Property Tax Adjustment Claim (Form HS-122), or Renter Rebate Claim (Form PR-141). These forms must be filed by their specific due dates.

If You Owe

To avoid interest and penalties you must pay your current year tax liability in full by April 15, 2014 and submit your Vermont return by October 15, 2014.

Find out if you owe using the Worksheet on Form IN-151.

Pay Online

Pay your taxes online using VTPay. Pay by credit card and select the “Estimated Payment” option. There is a convenience fee for payments over $200.

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.
