When Are State Tax Returns Due in Hawaii?
Hawaii is one of several states in which your state income tax return can be filed after April 15.
You probably already know that most Americans have to file their 2018 federal tax return by April 15, 2019 (as we told you earlier). For most states with an income tax (there are nine states with no income tax), the state return is also due on April 15 this year. However, some states give you more time to file — such as Hawaii.
States With Tax Deadlines After April 15 in 2019
|New Mexico||April 30 (if e-filed)|
|Oklahoma||April 22 (if e-filed)|
Residents of the Aloha State can file their 2018 state tax return up to one week after the federal tax deadline. Form N-11 is due by April 22, 2019.
Hawaiians who are unable to file their state tax return on time get an automatic six-month extension. But if you owe Hawaii taxes, you must pay them in full by April 22, even if you seek a filing extension.
We recommend filing both federal and state returns at the same time if possible. State returns typically "piggyback" off the federal return, so it's usually easier to do them at the same time. There's also a better chance of avoiding discrepancies if you do them together. However, if that's not possible, having an extra week to file your Hawaii return can help. It gives you more time to focus on getting your federal return off before the April 15 deadline and then to get your state return just right.
