A Nebraska Extension of Time.
DOR accepts the federal extension of time to file. It is only necessary to file a Nebraska extension of time if you are making a tentative tax payment or when a federal extension is not filed. An extension of time to file does not stop the accrual of interest on unpaid tax.
A six-month extension to file Form 1040N may only be obtained by:
1. Attaching a copy of a timely-filed Application for Automatic Extension of Time to File U.S. Individual Income Tax Return, Federal Form 4868, to the Nebraska return when filed;
2. Attaching a schedule to your Nebraska return listing your federal confirmation number and providing an explanation that you received a federal extension;
3. Filing a Nebraska Application for Extension of Time, Form 4868N, on or before the due date of the return, when you need to make a tentative Nebraska payment or when a federal extension is not being requested; or
4. Attaching a copy of the statement or letter submitted with your federal return requesting the automatic extension of time to file for a U.S. citizen residing outside the U.S. or Puerto Rico, to the Nebraska return when filed.
