Critical Tax Deadlines for the 2017 Tax Year

Critical Tax Deadlines for the 2017 Tax Year

At some point every spring, Americans begin scrambling as they try to figure out what forms they must file and when they must file them in the new tax season.

The official deadline to file your federal income tax return each has been a little shifty. Yes, it’s supposed to be April 15—unless something interferes with that timing like April 15 falling on a weekend or a holiday. Whenever a tax deadline falls on a Saturday, a Sunday or a legal holiday, it’s typically moved to the next business day.


Partnership returns (IRS Form 1065):
March 15, 2018 |  Extended deadline is September 17, 2018

Estimated tax payments for the 2018 Tax Year (IRS Form 1040ES): 
April 17, 2018 | June 15, 2018 | September 17, 2018 | January 15, 2019

Trust and estate income tax returns (IRS Form 1041):
April 17, 2018 | Extended deadline is October 1, 2018

C-corporation income tax returns (IRS Forms 1120):
April 17, 2018 for C corporations on a calendar year | Extended deadline is October 15, 2018

The deadline for C-corp returns is the 15th day of the fourth month following the end of the corporation’s fiscal year if
the corporation is on a fiscal rather than a calendar year. An exception exists for some corporations with fiscal years that
end on June 30, but check with a tax professional for the most current information because this provision is temporary. 

S-corporation returns (IRS Form 1120-S):
March 15, 2018 for corporations on a calendar year | Extended deadline is September 17, 2018

Foreign bank account reports (IRS FinCen Form 114):
April 16, 2018 | Extended deadline for Form 1040 is October 15, 2018
