Are you having trouble paying taxes? Do you need more time to file? Follow the steps below to get back on track:
- File your return, with or without a payment. The Oklahoma Tax Commission honors the IRS extension. However, this is only an extension to file, not to pay.
- If you do not include 90% of the payment due, you will receive a bill that includes penalty and interest in addition to the amount due.
- Follow the instructions on the bill to explore your payment options.
Penalty & Interest
Delinquent Penalty and Interest
If at least 90% of the tax liability is not paid by the original due date of the return, the unpaid tax becomes delinquent and a penalty of 5% shall be charged thereon.
If less than 100% of the tax liability is paid by the original due date of the return, interest on the unpaid amount is assessed, even when no delinquent penalty is assessed. The unpaid tax becomes delinquent and interest is charged at the rate of 1.25% per month from the date of the delinquency until paid.
Underpayment of Estimated Tax Penalty
Estimated tax payments were required if the tax liability exceeds withholding (if applicable) by $500 or more. To avoid the Underpayment of Estimated Tax Interest, timely filed estimated tax payments and withholding (if applicable) are required to be equal to the smaller of 70% of the current year tax liability or 100% of the prior year tax liability.
The Underpayment of Estimated Tax Interest due on any quarterly due date is computed at a rate of 20% per annum for the period of underpayment.
Note: No Underpayment of Estimated Tax Interest will be imposed if the tax liability shown on the return is less than $1,000.
