Personal Income Tax (PIT) Postponement Effect on Extended File Due Date

Taxpayers were granted a postponement to file their 2020 tax year PIT return from April 15, 2021, to May 17, 2021. The postponement is for taxpayers who file form 540, 540 2EZ, or 540NR, and PIT composite returns.

The State of California also (automatically) grants an extension to file a PIT return of six months from the original return filing due date of April 15th.

Therefore, the extension due date to file a 2020 tax year PIT return remains October 15, 2021.
