JACKSON, Miss. (WJTV) – The Mississippi Department of Revenue said the deadline to file and pay the 2019 individual income tax and corporate income tax has been extended until May 15, 2020. The agency is extended the deadline due to the coronavirus (COVID-19).

The first quarter 2020 estimated tax payment has also been extended until that same date. Penalty and interest will not accrue on the extension period through May 15, 2020. Witholding tax payments for the month of April are extended until that date.
