General Instructions

North Carolina individual income tax returns are due by the 15th day of the 4th month after the close of the tax year. For calendar year filers, this date is usually April 15. If you cannot file on time, you can get a North Carolina tax extension.

A North Carolina personal extension will give you 6 more months to file, moving the deadline to October 15 (for calendar year taxpayers). It’s important to note that a tax extension only applies to filing — it does not extend the time you have to pay state income tax. While you aren’t required to make a tax payment with your extension, any balance not paid by the original due date (April 15) will be subject to interest and penalties.

To request an extension, use North Carolina Form D-410 (Application for Extension for Filing Individual Income Tax Return). If you owe North Carolina tax, remember to make an extension payment with your request and submit Form D-410 by the original due date of your return (April 15). Your extension request can be filed and paid electronically via North Carolina’s Online Filing and Payment system:

The State of North Carolina urges individuals to electronically file (“e-file”) their tax extension. But if you’d rather get a paper version, you can order Form D-410 by calling 1 (877) 252-3052 or by going to the “Order Forms” webpage:
