New York and Many Other States Follows IRS and
Extends Income Tax Filing Deadline to May 17

The extended deadline only applies to individual income tax returns at this time. This relief does not apply to estimated tax payments that are due on April 15, 2021. These payments are still due on April 15, 2021.
