If you need more time to file, you can extend the due date for fi ling. You must fi rst qualify for an IRS extension of time to file. Ohio does not have an Ohio extension request form, but honors the IRS extension. You should include with the Ohio income tax return a copy of your IRS extension or your extension confirmation number or a printed copy of the IRS acknowledgment. Additionally, you should check the box on the Ohio IT 1040 indicating that you have filed the federal extension 4868. An extension of time to file does not extend the time for payment of the tax due. So, except as set forth below, you must make extension payments by April 15, 2021 on Ohio IT 40P (available on our Web site at tax.ohio.gov).
Interest will accrue on any tax not paid by April 15, 2021, and penalties may also apply.
