Hoosiers don’t have to file and pay their state income taxes until May 17 this year.

That’s after Gov. Eric Holcomb issued an executive order Monday, aligning the state’s deadline with the new federal tax deadline set by the Biden administration.

The U.S. Treasury Department announced last week Americans would have until mid-May, acknowledging the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic is still creating “unusual circumstances” for taxpayers.

The IRS is still processing millions of tax returns from last year, when the filing deadline was pushed back to July.
