Form 7004 is used to request an automatic extension of time to file certain business income tax, information and other returns. Generally, Form 7004 must be filed on or before the regular due date of the applicable tax return and can be filed electronically for most returns.
To file Form 7004 using TaxACT:
Returns shown on Part I of Form 7004 (including Form 1065) are eligible for an automatic 5-month extension of time to file from the due date of the return. Returns shown on Part II of Form 7004 (including Forms 1120 and 1120S) are eligible for an automatic 6-month extension of time to file from the due date of the return.
Certain states will allow an accepted federal Form 7004 as an extension of time to file your state return, while other states require a separate extension request. TaxACT will provide information about state filing requirements during the extension interview.
