Extension of Time to File a Tax Return
An extension may be granted at the discretion of the Comptroller. To obtain consideration for an extension, the taxpayer must make an application, using the RLF-001: Application: Request To File After The Due Date, to the Comptroller outlining the specific reason requested for the extension. Generally, circumstances that were beyond the control of the taxpayer, such as a catastrophic event, are considered valid reasons for requesting an extension. The granting of an extension means that late filing penalties will not be assessed, however, interest charges will not be waived. (Also see section: When is Income Tax Due)
