State Taxpayers Have Until April 17 to File Returns

LITTLE ROCK (AP) - Arkansans who were starting to panic about filing their tax returns by the normal April 15th deadline -- which is Sunday -- can relax a little.

A state official says the deadline for both state and federal returns isn't until midnight Tuesday, April 17, because the 15 falls on a Sunday this year.

State officials say they have adopted that deadline to match the deadline set by the federal Internal Revenue Service for federal income tax returns.

Returns filed electronically must be transmitted before midnight Tuesday night, and mailed returns must bear a postmark no later than the April 17.

State income tax administrator David Foster says taxpayers needing more time can file a request for an extension, and a federal extension also covers state returns. The extension is to submit forms, not pay taxes.

    Recently Region 8 News aired a story that got the attention of our editorial board. A long-standing rule at Peddlers Bar & Bistro in New York limits anyone dining with children to one alcoholic beverage, in order to hopefully limit the danger children face from drunk drivers.
