Revised Tax Return Due Dates for Partnerships and C Corporations

President Obama signed the Surface Transportation and Veterans Health Care Choice Improvement Act of 2015 (“Act”) into law on July 31, 2015. The Act includes a series of revised tax return filing deadlines for partnerships and C corporations.

Returns for partnerships and entities taxed as a partnership filing a Form 1065 are due March 15 or the 15th day of the third month following the end of the organization’s fiscal year. The previous due date was April 15. Extensions are available for up to six months.

Returns for C corporations and entities taxed as a C corporation filing a Form 1120 are due April 15 or the 15th day of the fourth month following the end of the organization’s fiscal year. The previous due date was March 15. Returns for C corporations with a fiscal year ending on June 30 are due on September 15 until 2025. After 2025, the returns are due on October 15. Most C corporations can receive extensions of up to five months until 2026. After 2026, all C corporations can receive extensions for up to six months.

Tax returns for S corporations remain unchanged and are due on Mach 15 or the 15th day of the third month after the end of the organization’s fiscal year.

The new dates are effective for tax years beginning after December 31, 2015. These changes are not applicable to most filers until tax returns for 2016 are due in 2017, excluding short year filings.
