Can You File Your Taxes After October 15?

Sometimes, you are not prepared to file your business taxes on time and require an extension. Remember, the extension is on when you file your taxes and not when payments are due. 

The deadline to file your business tax return is the same date as the day you must file for a tax extension. For example, if your company’s tax return is due by March 16, you must file Form 7004 for extension by March 16.

Small business owners who report their business activities on their personal tax returns, should not request a business extension with Form 7005. These taxpayers should instead request a personal extension with Form 4868 for both personal and business taxes. A Form 4868 should be filed by the original due date of your personal tax return on April 15.
Here a list of deadlines for extended business tax returns:

  • Schedule C for sole proprietors and single-member LLC’s: extension until October 15, 2020 filed with the owner’s personal tax return
  • Partnership and multiple-member LLC filing as partnership extension deadline is September 15, 2020 
  • S corporation extension deadline is September 15, 2020 
  • Corporation extension deadline is October 15, 2019
