Two weeks to file your taxes

The following was issued by the Rhode Island Department of Revenue:

The Rhode Island Division of Taxation is reminding taxpayers and tax professionals that the deadline is two weeks away for filings and payments involving Rhode Island resident and non-resident personal income tax returns covering the 2019 tax year.

Due to the coronavirus pandemic, the deadline for filings and payments was postponed from April 15 to July 15. The deadline for a number of other filings and payments has also been moved to July 15, 2020. No late charges will apply to filings and payments that are made before July 15, 2020.

For anyone who has yet to file, the Division recommends filing electronically. E-filed returns are processed more quickly than paper returns. There are fewer errors.

Also, e-filing gives you the option to have your Rhode Island personal income tax deposited directly into your bank account (assuming a complete and accurate return is filed). Direct deposit is not available for returns filed on paper.
