The Department of Revenue has extended the tax filing deadline for submitting state personal income tax returns - or extensions - until midnight on Friday. Typically, April 15 is the deadline for filing taxes.


DOR has been experiencing issues with its website filing system, the department said, adding that it is working to resolve the problems.


"The Department of Revenue's WebFile tool, which allows individuals to electronically file state personal income tax returns, has experienced delays due to heavy volume over the past few days," the department said.
