How to file tax extensions in Nebraska
Inncome tax returns for residents of the Cornhusker State are due by April 15.
However, if you need more time to file, the state of Nebraska will grant you an automatic six-month tax extension if you have already received a federal tax extension. This will extend your filing due date to Oct. 15.
You are only required to file a separate Nebraska tax extension application if you have not requested a federal tax extension, or if you owe state income tax and need to make a payment. Use Nebraska Tax Form 4868N (Nebraska Application for Automatic Extension of Time to File a Nebraska Individual Income Tax Return) to apply for a state tax extension and/or to pay your state tax liability.
Keep in mind, a tax extension only extends the time you have to file your return, and any tax due must be paid by the original filing deadline (April 15) to avoid penalties and interest charges. The Nebraska Department of Revenue will only notify you if your state tax extension request is denied.
Mail Form 4868N to the following address:
Nebraska Department of Revenue, PO Box 94818, Lincoln, Nebraska 68509-4818
