Important tax deadline dates for businesses

We get it. Thinking about taxes while you’re trying to run a business is obnoxious. While it’s not unusual to rush before filing deadlines, it’s important that you file on time to avoid extra fees. Below is an update on important deadlines ahead.

For S-corporations
March 15

●      By the 15th, you must file your 2018 calendar year income tax return (Form 1120S) and pay any taxes.

●      Give each shareholder a copy of Schedule K-1 (Form 1120S), Shareholder's Share of Income, Deductions, Credits, etc., or a substitute Schedule K-1.

●      If you want a 6-month extension of time to file the return, file Form 7004 and deposit what you estimate you owe.

●      Want to elect to be treated as an S-corporation in 2019? File Form 2553, Election by a Small Business Corporation.

 

For partnerships
March 15

●      This is the due date to file a 2018 calendar year return with Form 1065. Provide each partner with a copy of Schedule K-1 (Form 1065), Partner's Share of Income, Deductions, Credits, etc., or a substitute Schedule K-1.

●      Need a 5-month extension? If you want until Sept. 15 to file the return and provide Schedule K-1 or a substitute Schedule K-1, file Form 7004.

●      For electing large partnerships:

     ○      This is the due date to file a 2018 calendar year return (Form 1065-B). If you want an automatic 6-month extension of time to file the return, file Form 7004.
