BUFFALO, N.Y. (WKBW) — The deadline to submit your personal income tax return is coming up quickly, The New York State Department of Taxation and Finance reminds taxpayers the deadline is Monday, April 15th.

For the last three years taxpayers have had a few extra days to file because of certain holidays, but this year Tax Day returns to its traditional date.

“The fact that Tax Day is on April 15 might come as a surprise to some taxpayers who have come to expect a few extra days to meet their filing obligations,” said New York State Taxpayer Rights Advocate Margaret Neri. “Free resources are available on our website to ease filing and help taxpayers meet the deadline.”

New York taxpayers who had a 2018 income of less than $66,000 can find options to file their personal income tax return for free here.

The department says those who don't believe they can meet the April 15th deadline can file for an extension here.
