What is the deadline for filing my California state taxes?

Asked 9 months ago
The deadline for filing your California state taxes is generally April 15th. However, if April 15th falls on a weekend or holiday, the deadline is extended to the following business day. It is important to note that requesting an extension of time to file does not extend the deadline for paying any taxes owed. If you need additional time to file your return, you can request an automatic six-month extension by filing Form FTB 3519. This extension only applies to the filing of your return; any taxes owed must still be paid by the original April deadline to avoid penalties and interest. It is recommended to file your taxes as early as possible to avoid any last-minute stress or complications.
