Business Return Extension Deadline is Tomorrow, March 15
To Our Valued Partners,
Partner Support is sharing an important reminder that the deadline to e-File Form 7004 – Business Extensions is tomorrow, Wednesday, March 15. Remember, the Form 7004 does not extend the time for payment of tax. Refer to the Form 7004 instructions below for additional information on payment of tax and balance due.
For more information on Form 7004 Business Extension, please refer to the following IRS Resources:
E-filing Form 7004 (Application for Automatic Extension to File Certain Business Income Tax, Information, and Other Returns)
Similar to filing Form 4868 Extension for the Federal 1040 Form, the Business Extension Form 7004 requires some minimal entries (e.g. EIN, Company Name & Address, Signing Officer information for e-filing, Officer Information), many of which will automatically pull from the program Client Data screen so make sure that information is completed on the business return before adding Form 7004.
To Transmit the Business Extension
Click Queue in the menu bar
The program will show the “Return Errors and Rejects” window if there are errors on the business return. Because the business return is not being sent at this time and only the extension is being sent, most errors (even fatal) can be ignored and you can click NEXT
On the “Queue Return For Transmission” window select only the Queue Federal Extension.
Click SEND to queue the extension for transmission.
Transmit to Central Site/Main Office
