The deadline to file an extension for S corporation and partnership tax returns is March 15, 2021. E-file now!

Tax deadlines can sneak up on you, and nothing is more aggravating than having to pay a fine you could have avoided. Save each relevant filing date to your calendar and stay one step ahead of the IRS. So when is the 2021 “tax day”? April 15, 2021.

The IRS has extended the deadline for filing and paying business returns normally due on March 15th and April 15th to victims of the Texas winter storms until June 15th, 2021.

So when do you have to pay your taxes? If you’re mailing your return, the IRS considers it “on time” if it’s properly addressed, has enough postage, and arrives in the mail before the end of business on the filing deadline. Otherwise, you have until midnight on your tax filing deadline day to e-file your return.

So when are the tax extensions for 2021 due? You have until the due date of your taxes to file for an extension. Individuals can still file for a tax extension on April 15 if they want to.

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.
