Deadline Approaching for Tax Year 2022 Filing Extension

October 11, 2023

Phoenix, AZ—The due date for the 2022 calendar year returns filed with extensions is almost here. Individual income taxpayers who received a filing extension--and have yet to file a return--have until Monday, October 16 to submit their tax returns. Arizona corporate calendar year timely filers (Forms 120, 120A, 99T, and 99M) have until November 15. Partnership and S corporation returns were due September 15; fiduciary returns were due September 30.

Be mindful that paper income returns are considered timely based on the postmark date and electronic returns and payments may need to be submitted a couple days early to be considered timely.

More than 240,800 individuals and 178,400 corporations received an extension for 2022 tax year returns from the state.

Thus far for tax year 2022, 92 percent of individual income tax returns in Arizona were e-filed. During the recent tax filing season, refunds from e-filed returns took an average of 7 business days to process, compared to an average of 51 business days for paper returns.

Filing Tips
