Monday, April 15th is the deadline to file both state and federal income taxes.

Senior Communication Specialist Chetrice Mosley with the Indiana Department of Revenue says there is still plenty of time for Hoosiers to file their income taxes electronically. Mosley says the state offers people who qualify the opportunity to file both federal and state income tax returns for free through a program called Indiana Freefile. Qualified filers must have an adjusted gross income of 57-thousand dollars or less.

With the filing deadline just a few days away, many people may need and extension to file their returns. Mosley says people who are filing an extension will still need to pay all or as much of the taxes they owe as they can by the April 15th deadline.

Mosley says people should use their best estimate of the taxes owed.Once a payment is made and the extension form is submitted, the taxpayer has until June to submit their completed return. Information about the Freefile program or extensions to file is available at the Department of Revenue‘s website, www.in.gov/dor.
