NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WATE) — The Tennessee Department of Revenue is extending the filing and payment deadline to May 17 for Hall income tax returns and, for certain taxpayers, the franchise and excise tax return.
This extension follows the Internal Revenue Service’s announcement that it is extending the deadline for federal individual income tax returns to May 17.

The extension applies for all taxpayers that file the Hall income tax. For franchise and excise tax, the extension only applies to individuals who file a state franchise and excise tax return using Schedule J2 – Computation of Net Earnings for a Single Member LLC Filing as an Individual.
The Oct. 15, 2021, six-month extension date for the calendar year 2020 return remains unchanged.
Estimated payments due on April 15, 2021, are not included in this extension. These estimated payments are still due on April 15.
