September 15

Do you need more time to prepare and file your 2016 business tax return? If you aren’t prepared by the March 15th deadline, you can request a tax extension for free with RapidTax. This gives you an additional 5-6 months to accurately prepare your business taxes at your own pace.

Create an account on our website and get your automatic extension within minutes. It’s completely free and does not require IRS approval. Then you can log back into your account anytime before September 15th, 2017 to finish your business return.

E-file a business extension right here on RapidTax. You must do it no later than March 15th, 2017 for an S-Corp or C-Corp, or April 15th for an LLC or partnership. After that, the IRS will not accept a request for an extension.

Remember - an extension gives you extra time to file. It does not give you extra time to pay. When you file your extension by the March 15th deadline, you will need to estimate your tax liability and pay a portion of your tax due to the IRS.
