Law revises due dates for 2016 returns

Posted on Oct 27, 2015

The Surface Transportation and Veterans Health Care Choice Improvement Act of 2015 changed due dates for some 2016 federal business returns (the ones you’ll file in 2017).

Here’s a sample of the changes:

Partnerships (Form 1065) – 2½ months after the close of the tax year. For calendar-year partnerships, that means a due date of March 15.

C corporations (Form 1120) – 3½ months after the close of the tax year. For calendar-year C corporations the due date will be April 15. Note there is a special rule for C corporations with a June 30 year-end. These corporations will not have to comply with the new due dates until after 2025.

S corporations (Form 1120S) – No change. The due date remains 2½ months after the close of the tax year (March 15 for calendar-year corporations).
