Due Dates for Taxes and Fees

Coronavirus (COVID-19): Resources and Updates

We are closely monitoring the impact of COVID-19 throughout the state. We have information for taxpayers on our agency’s COVID-19 response page.

Payment Deadlines

Late payments are subject to penalties.

Electronic Check and Credit Card via Webfile: Payments must be submitted by 11:59 p.m. Central Standard Time (CST) on the due date to be considered timely.

TEXNET: When paying by TEXNET, follow the Schedule of Electronic Funds Transfer Due Dates 2020 (PDF).

Electronic Data Interchange (EDI): When filing and paying by EDI, follow the EDI Guidelines for remitting payment.

Paper Check: Your mailed check must be postmarked on or before the due date.

Reporting Due Dates for 2020

Due dates on this chart are adjusted for Saturdays, Sundays, and legal holidays. For applicable taxes, quarterly reports are due in April, July, October and January.

Note: When a reporting due date happens to fall on Saturday, Sunday, or a legal holiday, the reporting due date becomes the next business day. For example, for reports normally due on the 25th of the month, a taxpayer files Dec. 26 instead of Dec. 25, which is Christmas day and a legal holiday. If Dec. 26 is a weekend day, then the reporting date becomes the next business day.
