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 1027) includes a payment for the amount of any tax reasonably estimated to be due. Interest accrues at the rate of ½% per month, or fraction of a month, on any unpaid tax from the original due date of the return until paid.
If an extension is not filed and if there is a balance due when the return is filed, a penalty will be charged for filing the return late. If you have doubt as to whether the final return will show a balance due, file Form 1027 for an extension.
To extend your due date for submitting your completed income tax return (from April 30, 2015 to October 15, 2015), submit the following to the Division of Revenue no later than April 30, 2015:
Your payment of any balance of tax liability estimated to be due for tax year 2014 AND
The completed copy of Form 1027.
The application for an automatic extension, Form 1027, may be filed on-line at our website at www.revenue.delaware.gov. If you owe tax with your extension for 2014 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 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.
To extend your due date beyond October 15, 2015, file with the Delaware Division of Revenue a photocopy of your approved Federal extension on or before the expiration of the extension granted on Form 1027. The approved federal extension will extend the due date of your Delaware return to the same date as your federal extension due date and must be attached to your Delaware return.
