The due date for tax returns in the state of Texas is 6/15/2021. The allowable date field for electronic payment of taxes due needs to be changed such that dates between 5/17 and 6/15 are allowed. You cannot override the field. Is the only solution for a draft date after 5/17 to hold the returns until after 5/17?
So... is a solution to this: wait until after 5/17 to efile a Texas return. At that point, will the date be advanced such that extensions and returns filed after 5/17 by non-Texas states resolve the date issue? In other words, returns filed after 5/17 will have payment dates up to 10/15. I guess we just wait and see. There is no rush to efile a return that has a balance due.
