CAUTION: THERE IS NO EXTENSION OF TIME FOR PAYMENT OF TAX
An extension of time to file your tax return is granted when the Application for Automatic Extension (Form 200ES (1027)) is filed prior to the due date of your return. Interest accrues on any unpaid tax at a rate of ½% per month, or fraction of a month, from the return’s original due date until paid.
To extend your due date for submitting your completed income tax return (from April 30, 2021 to October 15, 2021) submit the following to the Division of Revenue no later than April 30, 2021:
1. The completed copy of Form 200ES (1027); AND
2. Your payment of any balance of tax liability estimated to be due for tax year 2020.
The application for an automatic extension, Form 200ES (1027), may be filed on-line at our website at www.revenue.delaware.gov. If you owe tax with your extension for 2020 and file on-line, you may use a direct debit from your checking or savings account or pay by credit card. If you are paying by direct debit you may specify a later payment date, up to the due date. Payments by direct debit must not come from an account outside the U.S. and may be made in any amount without dollar limitation. Payments up to $2,500 can be made by credit card. If you choose not to file online, a blank copy of Form 200ES (1027) is available from the Division of Revenue or from our website above.
Blanket requests for extensions will not be granted. YOU MUST submit a separate application for each return.
