Filing An Income Tax Extension

As the March 15th S-Corp and 1065 deadline approaches, you may need to file an extension.  Corporations and individual tax returns are due April 18th this year.

Filing an extension for your business return will also most likely mean you will need to do the same for your personal income tax return.  It helps you avoid the late filing penalty. If you expect to owe, filing an automatic six month extension does not stop the requirement to pay taxes by the original filing deadline of 3/15 or 4/18.  You must estimate the taxes owed or risk the late payment and interest penalties.

If you prepare your own return and want to file an extension, the forms can be found below.
