Filing a Form 1120 C Corporation income tax return? Make sure that you’re aware of an important change in the due date so your return is completed on time. This year, Form 1120 for calendar-year corporations will be due on April 18, 2017.
Weren’t these returns typically due a month earlier?
Yes. Such returns were due in previous years on March 15th after the close of the corporation’s tax year.
What returns were actually due on March 15th?
You may be thinking of Form 1065 Partnership tax returns, which did move back to March 15th while Form 1120 returns for corporations moved forward to mid-April.
What if your corporation has a fiscal year that ends on June 30th rather than the calendar year?
In that particular case, the new due date will not apply until the tax years after 2025 and your corporation will have a due date of September 15th.
Though having some extra time for filing your Form 1120 C Corporation return is good to have, don’t delay in providing all of the corporation’s financial information to Bronswick Benjamin as soon as possible. Being the final portion of “tax season,” our staff will be very busy between now and April 18th and it’s vital that we give your return the special attention it deserves.
