ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) — New York state residents are getting an extra month to file their state income taxes. State Budget Director Robert Mujica Jr. says the filing deadline will move from April 15 to May 17. That matches a move from the federal government. The Internal Revenue Service announced on Wednesday that it was pushing back the deadline for filing and paying taxes to May as a way to help people during the pandemic. Mujica says pushing the tax filing deadline back would move about $6 billion of revenue from April to May for New York.
