However, due to holidays and natural calamities, some states have made exceptions and delayed the deadline for compliance.

For example, Patriot Day and Liberation Day are celebrated on April 15 and 16 respectively. For this reason, Maine and Massachusetts tax returns can be filed until April 17, 2024.
