Extension of time to file a WA State Estate and Transfer Tax Return

Paper application
  • Application for Extension of Time to File a Washington State Estate and Transfer Tax Return (Fill-In or Print)​
    • An executor or a preparer may request an extension for filing the estate tax return by completing the form above. If applicable, include an estimated tax payment.
    • A Confidential Tax Information Authorization (CTIA) form is included with the paper extension request. Executors may use this form to grant the Preparer access to Confidential Tax Information and/or to authorize communication via fax or unsecured email.
    • An extension may be submitted without the CTIA form. However, the CTIA form must be submitted with the extension because it is necessary to create an account. We are unable to process the CTIA form without an account.

Note: Use this form to request a second extension (up to an additional six months).​
