If it looks like you still cannot file on time, you can get an automatic six-month extension of time to filefile. On the Federal side, you will fill out Form 4868. On the State side, you would fill out Form IT-201,Resident Income Tax Return, or Form IT-203, Nonresident and Part-Year Resident Income Tax Return.

You must request the extension of time to file on or before the due date of your return.
