City of East Lansing’s 2020 Income Tax Filing Due Date Extended to June 1, 2021

EAST LANSING, Mich. — The Treasury Department and Internal Revenue Service (IRS) recently announced that the 2020 federal income tax filing due date is automatically extended from April 15, 2021 to May 17, 2021.

The City of East Lansing will be following the IRS based on Sec 141.664 of the Uniform City Income Tax Act. The East Lansing Income Tax Administrator will be moving the due date for 2020 income tax filings from April 30, 2021 to June 1, 2021.

With this extension, taxpayers can defer income tax filings and payments due on April 30, 2021 to June 1, 2021 without penalties and interest, regardless of the amount owed. This deferment applies to all taxpayers, including individuals, trusts and estates, corporations and other non-corporate tax filers as well as those who pay self-employment tax. Taxpayers do not need to file any additional forms or call to qualify for this automatic tax filing and payment relief. Individual taxpayers who need additional time to file beyond the June 1 deadline, can request a filing extension by filing an extension form.

At this time, 2021 estimated payment due dates have not been changed or moved. As the City of East Lansing receives additional information from the State of Michigan, updates will be provided on estimated payment due dates.

Taxpayers who are owed a refund are encouraged to file their tax returns as soon as they are able so they can receive their refunds. Income tax forms and additional information is available at www.cityofeastlansing.com/incometax. Completed forms and any owed payments can be sent to the City of East Lansing Income Tax Processing Center, P.O. Box 526, Eaton Rapids, MI 48827. Returns can also be dropped off in the blue drop box in the north parking lot of East Lansing City Hall, 410 Abbot Road.

Community members with questions can contact East Lansing Income Tax Administrator Jill Rhode at (517) 319-6862 or incometax@cityofeastlansing.com
