OKLAHOMA CITY – The deadline for filing state income tax returns and paying any taxes due the state has been extended for three months, to July 15, Oklahoma Tax Commission spokesperson Paula Ross announced Friday.

The three-member Tax Commission approved the extension unanimously after newly established Internal Revenue Service deadlines were issued.

U.S. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin announced Friday that the Trump Administration decided to push back the federal income-tax filing date, along with the payment date, from April 15 to July 15. Later that day the OTC followed suit.

Income tax due from Tax Year 2019, and the first quarter payment for Tax Year 2020, would both normally be due on April 15, 2020. Charles Prater, chairman of the Oklahoma Tax Commission, said, “We are following IRS guidelines and want to remind Oklahomans that due dates for other tax types, including sales and withholding taxes, remain the same.”

To keep Oklahoma citizens informed in this rapidly changing environment, the OTC has established a dedicated page with current information regarding COVID-19 updates at COVID-19_Information_ and_Updates.html.
