COLUMBUS, Ohio (Statehouse News Bureau) — Ohioans have more time to get their state taxes done this year with the deadline for filing and paying delayed. April 15th is no longer the deadline.

The Ohio Department of Taxation moved the tax filing and payment deadline to May 17th to provide relief to people affected by public safety measures related to the pandemic.

Many state and regional taxes also due on April 15th are now extended if they are tied to the state’s tax schedule.

The state’s move comes after the Internal Revenue Service announced it moved its tax filing deadline to May 17th, also.
