To be clear, this only covers income tax for 2019. It does not cover:
- Any other tax type. Monthly or annual returns for General Excise, Withholding, Transient Accommodations, Estate and Generation-Skipping, Fuel, Liquor, Tobacco, and Rental Motor Vehicle/Tour Vehicle Taxes are still due at the same time. Payments are still due at the same time. If electronic filing or payments are required, they are still required.
- Income tax for any other year. Delinquent payments for any past year are still due and payable, and interest continues to run until the payment is made.
- Estimated income tax for 2020. In particular, the estimated tax for the first quarter of 2020 is still required to be paid by April 20, 2020.
Also, not everyone gets a benefit from the deadline extension! If you are due a tax refund, claim it as soon as possible! The Tax Office is still processing mailed-in and electronic returns. If you don’t claim your refund, the State will happily keep it for another three months – and they don’t have to pay you interest for doing so!
The Tax Foundation of Hawaii is still alive, well, and working remotely! Stay safe, everyone!
