E-File IRS Form 7004 with ETAX7004
IRS Form 7004 is used to request automatic extensions to file business tax returns for partnership, multiple member LLC filings as a partnership, corporations, or s-corporations. IRS Form 7004 will provide your businesses with the convenience of a 5-1/2 month, 6-month and/or a7-month extension if you file on or before the original due date of the tax return. File your automatic Extension Form 7004 on time and pay the tax before the original due date of the tax return to avoid IRS penalties, which can be as high as 25% of the total taxes due.
In September 2017 Form 7004 was simplified and now consists of two parts. Part I now includes, in form number order, all forms for which an extension can be granted. Filer requesting an extension will enter the form code for the return for which the extension is granted in the box located at the top of Part I. Part II now includes questions for all filers.
Specific Instructions on Tax Form 7004
Part I — Automatic Extension for Certain Business Income Tax, Information, and Other Returns
Enter the appropriate form code in the boxes on line 1 to indicate the type of return for which you are requesting an extension. See Maximum extension period, earlier.
If an association is electing to file Form 1120-H, U.S. Income Tax Return for Homeowners Association, it should file for an extension on Form 7004 using the original form type assigned to the entity. See the Instructions for Form 1120-H (https://www.irs.gov/pub/irs-pdf/i1120h.pdf).
Note: The trustee of a trust required to file Form 1041-A must use Form 8868, instead of Form 7004, to request an extension of time to file.
