Department of Taxation News Release: HAWAII FILING DEADLINE TO REMAIN APRIL 20, 2021

Posted on Mar 24, 2021 in Latest Department News, Newsroom


HONOLULU – After careful consideration, the Hawaii State Department of Taxation has decided not to extend the Tax Year 2020 filing deadline. Taxpayers must file their returns by April 20, 2021.

While the law requires taxpayers to file by April 20, taxpayers are granted an automatic 6-month extension (no form is required to request the extension) to file the return through October 20, 2021 if one of these two conditions is met:

  1. The taxpayer is due a refund, or
  2. The taxpayer pays the properly estimated tax amount owed by April 20, 2021. Taxpayers who are not able to pay the properly estimated tax amount owed should pay as much as they can to avoid additional interest and penalties.

Hawaii residents can file Form N-11, Hawaii Resident Income Tax Return, for FREE using Hawaii Tax Online ( Payments can also be made using Hawaii Tax Online or by submitting Form N-200V with the payment.
