State, Federal tax filing deadlines extended to May 17

Arkansans will have another month to file their individual state income tax thanks to an executive order signed by Governor Asa Hutchinson.

In a prepared statement the Governor’s office stated that, “Governor Asa Hutchinson, after consultation with the legislative leadership, has extended the deadline for filing state individual income tax until May 17, 2021.

The decision to push the deadline back was made to coincide with the extended federal deadline which was announced Wednesday, March 17. 

“Pushing back the due date for state income tax is a simple way to help Arkansans in light of the extension of the federal tax deadline. ” Governor Hutchinson said.  “The number of our COVID-19 cases, hospitalizations, and deaths continues to decline, and Arkansas is quickly rebounding. As the economy and our unemployment rate continue to improve, we will do all we can to help Arkansans to recover during the public health crisis.”

Governor Hutchinson issued a proclamation Friday to announce that he had signed Executive Order 21-06, which grants the extension for filing an Arkansas tax return or payment until May 17, 2021. The proclamation can be viewed HERE.
