On April 3, 2020 the Massachusetts Department of Revenue (DOR) released TIR 2020-4 which extends the April 15, 2020 deadline to July 15, 2020 for:

  • Personal income tax,
  • Estate and trust income tax,
  • Partnership composite returns,
  • Personal income with respect to deemed repatriated income, and
  • Extends the due date Q1 and Q2 estimated payments to July 15, 2020.

Corporate Returns and Payments

TIR 2020-4 does not extend the April 15 deadline for C-corps. However, the DOR is waiving late-file and late-payment penalties (although interests will still accrue).



Pursuant to guidance, the 2019 return and payment due date for personal income taxpayers is now July 15, 2020. As long as the amount required to be paid for a valid personal income tax extension is paid by July 15, 2020, such taxpayers will be eligible for an automatic extension of time to file. The duration of the automatic extension will be based on the original due date of the return, April 15, 2020, and not the modified.


Corporate excise taxpayers with an April 15, 2020 return due date that seek an automatic six- or seven-month extension, as applicable, must still pay the amount required for such extension by April 15, 2020.
