Form 7004 deadline is around the corner, March 15 is the Due Date

The Business Income Tax Filers can extension the deadline beyond March 15 by reporting Business Income Tax Extension Form 7004 by March 15th for certain business types. Even though you are filing an application for an extension, you must pay any taxes due by the regular tax return due date, depending on your business type. There is only one extension allowed per tax year. You can’t keep getting multiple extensions.

Maximum extension period.

The automatic extension period for time to file is generally 6 months. Exceptions apply for certain filers of Form 1041 and for C corporations with tax years ending June 30. An estate (other than a bankruptcy estate) and a trust filing Form 1041 are eligible for an automatic 5½-month extension of time to file. C corporations with tax years ending June 30 are eligible for an automatic 7-month extension of time to file (6-month extension if filing Form 1120-POL). See the instructions for Part II, lines 2 and 4, for exceptions for foreign corporations, certain domestic corporations, and certain partnerships with books and records outside of the United States and Puerto Rico. The due date varies based on the tax filing period and the type of business you operate.  Continue reading

Winter storm extension: Many businesses have extra time to request a 6-month extension

Here is the latest IRS new alert under Issue Number:IR-2018-50 and under this issue…

WASHINGTON — The Internal Revenue Service today granted many businesses affected by severe winter storms additional time to request a six-month extension to file their 2017 federal income tax returns.

The IRS is providing this relief to victims and tax professionals affected by last week’s storm–known as Winter Storm Quinn—and this week’s storm –known as Winter Storm Skylar–that primarily hit portions of the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic.

Business taxpayers who are unable to file their return by the regular due date—Thursday, March 15, 2018–can request an automatic extension by filing Form 7004, on or before Tuesday, March 20, 2018.  Form 7004,  available on IRS.gov, provides a six-month extension for returns filed by partnerships (Forms 1065and 1065-B) and S corporations (Form 1120S).

Eligible taxpayers taking advantage of this relief should write, “Winter Storm Quinn” or “Winter Storm Skylar,” on their Form 7004 extension request (if filing this form on paper).  As always, the fastest and easiest way to get an extension is to file this form electronically.

The IRS will continue to monitor conditions and provide additional relief if circumstances warrant.
