Extension of Time to File
Calendar year returns are due on Thursday, April 15, 2021. If you are unable to file by your prescribed due date, you may file under extension. This will allow you an additional six months to file your return, or until October 15th for calendar year filers. However, the extension to file does not allow you to extend your payment due date. You must pay at least 90% of your tax liability by the original due date of your return and the remainder by the filing extension due date to avoid delinquent payment penalties.
Amending a Return
If an amended return is filed with the IRS, or if the IRS changes the content of the return, an amendment must be filed with Colorado. Use Revenue Online or the DR 0112X to amend the Colorado return. If the Colorado amended return is filed to report an adjustment made by the Internal Revenue Service, a copy of the federal revenue agent’s report must be submitted with the amended return.
