As anticipated, Governor Asa Hutchison announced deadline changes Monday regarding the filing deadline for state income taxes. In his Monday afternoon briefing, Hutchinson said the filing and payment deadline for individuals mirrors the extended federal deadline to July 15.

The deadline for corporate filers and those making estimated payments remains unchanged.
