Plus... Returns Reminder

Partnerships and C corporations take note: The due dates for federal income tax returns have changed, starting with returns filed for the 2016 tax year.

For tax years beginning after December 31, 2015, partnerships will have to file their returns by the 15th day of the third month after the end of the tax year, a month earlier than under prior law. This means that partnerships using a calendar year generally will have to file by March 15 of the following year.

The filing deadline for C corporations is deferred for one month. Thus, C corporations will have to file by the 15th day of the fourth month after the end of the tax year. So, C corporations that use a calendar year will generally have to file by April 15 of the following year. Note that the filing deadline change won’t apply to C corporations with a June 30 fiscal year-end until the 2026 tax year.
