EXTENSION OF TIME TO FILE
New Mexico recognizes and accepts an IRS automatic extension of time to file. If you obtained the federal sixmonth automatic extension by filing federal Form 4868, Application for Automatic Extension of Time to File U.S. Individual Income Tax Return for tax year 2014, you have six months to file your New Mexico return. This makes October 15, 2015 the extended due date for calendar-year filers.
To extend your deadline beyond the six months, you are required to obtain an additional extension through the IRS or the state.
How To Request Additional Time To File Your PIT-1 If you expect to file your federal return by the original due date or by the sixmonth automatic extension allowed by the IRS, but you need additional time to file your New Mexico return, request an extension of time by filing New Mexico Form RPD-41096, Application for Extension of Time to File.
You must file RPD-41096 on or before the April 15, 2015 due date. When you file your return, you do not need to attach an approved state extension to the PIT-1.
