As June 12th, both chambers have voted to override Governor Cooper’s veto of the new state budget, allowing it to become law. Included in the budget was a state extension proposal NCACPA worked diligently on over the past several months. The provision requires any taxpayer granted an extension of time for filing a federal income tax return be granted an automatic extension of time to file the corresponding state income tax return and franchise tax return. This becomes effective for taxable years beginning on or after January 2019.
