Under Delaware law, the Director of the Division of Revenue has the ability to grant reasonable extensions of time for the payment of any tax or estimated tax when deemed appropriate.

Details are outlined in a new Tax Information Memorandum (TIM 2021-3) available on the agency website (https://revenue.delaware.gov).
As always, the Division of Revenue encourages taxpayers to file as soon as possible, once they have the necessary information required to do so.
The payment deadline of May 17, 2021, will not be further extended, so taxpayers should note that penalties and interest on underpayments will be calculated from that date, even if you request additional time to file.
