Reminder to tax-exempt organizations: 990s, other forms due July 15; e-file best way to file

Extension of Time beyond July 15

The Internal Revenue Service today reminds tax-exempt organizations that certain forms they file with the IRS are due on July 15, 2020. For organizations that operate on a calendar-year basis, this includes the 2019 Form 990 they would have normally filed on May 15. The upcoming July 15 deadline applies to many forms that were originally due May 15, including:                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                

  • Form 990-series annual information returns (Forms 990, 990-EZ, 990-PF, 990-BL)
  • Form 990-N, Electronic Notice (e-Postcard) for Tax-Exempt Organizations Not Required to File Form 990 or Form 990-EZ
  • Forms 8871, Political Organization Notice of Section 527 Status
  • Form 8872, Political Organization Report of Contributions and Expenditures
  • Form 990-T, Exempt Organization Business Income Tax Return
  • Form 1120-POL, Political Organization Filing Requirements
  • Form 4720, Private Foundation Excise Tax Return

Tax-exempt organizations that need additional time to file beyond the July 15 deadline can request an automatic extension by filing Form 8868, Application for Extension of Time to File an Exempt Organization Return. An organization will be allowed a six-month extension beyond the original due date. For a calendar-year 2019 return, this means the extended deadline would be Nov. 15, 2020. In situations where tax is due, extending the time for filing a return does not extend the time for paying tax. 

The IRS urges all organizations to take advantage of the speed and convenience of filing their returns electronically when possible.

The IRS also encourages the affected taxpayers to pay what they can and consider a variety of payment options available for the remaining balance.  

“The IRS understands that those affected by the coronavirus may not be able to pay their balances in full by July 15, but we have many payment options to help taxpayers,” said IRS Commissioner Chuck Rettig. “These easy-to-use payment options are available on IRS.gov, and most can be done automatically without reaching out to an IRS representative.”

Taxpayers unable to meet the July 15 due date can request an extension to file until October 15. However, this is not an extension of time to pay. Taxpayers must estimate their tax liability on the extension-form and pay as much as they can by July 15 to avoid possible penalties and interest.

March 16 Form 7004 Deadline is just couple of days to go

Paying taxes is not optional – it’s the law. Taxpayers do have options when it comes to how they pay their taxes. The IRS offers several easy ways to pay taxes. Taxpayers can pay online, by phone or with their mobile device using the IRS2Go app, just to name a few. Some taxpayers must make quarterly estimated tax payments throughout the year. This includes sole proprietors, partners, and S corporation shareholders who expect to owe $1,000 or more when they file. Individuals who participate in the gig economy might also have to make estimated payments.

Taxpayers should remember a few important things.

  • An extension of time to file a return is not an extension of time to pay.
  • Taxpayers should pay any taxes they owe by the March 16 deadline to avoid possible penalties and interest.
  • The extension request must be filed electronically or postmarked no later than March 16, 2020.

Not yet ready with all the required paper work to report the taxes, and looking to seek additional time with the IRS? then you must file the extension application by the due date of your business tax return.  Corporate tax returns (Forms 1120, 1120-A, and 1120-S) or partnership tax return (Form 1065) filers have to report Form 7004 for an automatic 6-month extension of time to file the return by September 15. Do remember to make the deposit on the Form 7004 return, of what you estimate you owe in tax. Form 7004 extension request is due by March 16, 2020.

The IRS strongly encourages people to file their tax returns electronically and choose direct deposit for faster refunds. Filing electronically reduces tax return errors as the tax software does the calculations, flags common errors and prompts taxpayers for missing information. The IRS says, Form 7004 does not extend the time for payment of tax.” You must pay taxes due (estimated) by your tax return due date, even if you file an extension application. You will need to estimate as best you can because under-estimating can subject your business to fines and penalties.
