Tax Day & Child Care Contribution Reminder

Tax Day Reminder - April 15, 2024

The filing and payment deadline for most 2024 filers is around the corner.

You may pay individual, estimated, corporate, and business taxes securely online using myVTax ( A login account for myVTax is not required to make payments. However, if you regularly make estimated tax payments, you may find a myVTax account a real-time-saver.

Check out the myVTax how-to video playlist to learn how to make payments ( and complete other important tasks using myVTax.

Filing Extensions

If you are granted a federal extension, it automatically applies in Vermont. However, extensions do not apply to Vermont's Homestead Declaration and Property Tax Credit Claim. An extension to file an income tax return does not extend the time to pay any tax owed. Pay income tax for Tax Year 2023 by April 15, 2024. Income Tax returns filed on extension are due October 15, 2024.

For more information about filing a request for a Vermont extension if you are not filing a federal extension, please see:

2024 Fall Tax Symposium

The 2024 Fall Tax Symposium, hosted by the Vermont Department of Taxes, will occur on Tuesday, October 22, 2024. This event is designed to help Tax Professionals learn about important changes and prepare for the upcoming tax season. More details, including registration information, will be available this summer.


Protect Your Identity

Keep your Social Security Number (SSN) safe - it is valuable information that criminals can use to commit many types of fraud. Criminals often try to trick you by calling, texting, or emailing you and pretending to be from the IRS, Social Security Administration, a bank, a utility company, or another type of business. They will falsely claim there has been some fraudulent activity related to your SSN or account and often threaten immediate arrest or account shutdown. By creating a sense of panic, they hope to lower your defenses. They may ask you to call a special number or press “1” to speak to someone who can “help” you. Do not fall for these tricks. Protect your personal information and be aware of these scams. 

  • If you get a call of this nature, don't say anything. Just hang up. Do not respond to text messages or emails or click on any links. Delete them.
  • Keep in mind that the Vermont Department of Taxes, IRS, and other government agencies never call you unless you request it first. They always initiate communications by mail.

To learn how to recognize scam calls, visit the Consumer Assistance Program of the Vermont Attorney General ( This website offers resources for individuals and businesses and Vermont's Top Ten Scams of 2023 ( You can also read this article about bank impersonation from the AARP (

How to Amend a Return

If you need to amend your Vermont tax return, use form IN-111, Vermont Income Tax Return (, to file. Most filing software does not support filing amended taxes, so you’ll likely have to file those by paper. Be sure to check the “Amended” check box. Note that if you filed an amended Federal Tax return, you need to submit an amended Vermont Tax Return within 180 days of filing the Federal return. If you received a “Notice of Change” from the IRS, you’re required to also file an amended Federal and Vermont return.

When filing the IN-111, you’ll need to include all schedules submitted with your original return, W-2s, and 1099s, even if the information has not changed. If you need to amend a Homestead Declaration or Property Tax Credit Claim (, you may amend the household income on Schedule HI-144 and the value for house site value, education tax, municipal tax, and ownership percentage on the HS-122 within three years of the April filing deadline.
