How do I file Form 7004 (Application for Automatic Extension of Time To File Certain Business Income Tax, Information, and Other Returns)?

IRS Form 7004 extends the filing deadline:

  • 5-1/2 months for Form 1041, U.S. Income Tax Return for Estates and Trusts.
  • 6 months for Forms 1065, U.S. Return of Partnership Income and 1120S, U.S. Income Tax Return for an S Corporation.
  • 6 months for Form 1120, U.S. Corporation Income Tax Return (unless the corporation's tax year ends on June 30, in which case a 7-month extension applies).

Thus, for tax year 2018,  the extended due dates for calendar-year entities would be:

  • September 30, 2019 for estates and trusts
  • September 15, 2019 for partnerships and S corporations
  • October 15, 2019 for corporations


Method 1: Download and print Form 7004 from the IRS website, fill it out according to the IRS instructions, and mail it to the address given on page 5 of the instructions.

Method 2: If you're using TurboTax Business to prepare your return, we'll walk you through the steps to paper-file your 7004 (e-filing not available):

  1. With your return open in TurboTax Business, type extend in the upper-right corner and click Find.
  2. Click the Jump to extend link in the search results.
  3. Under Which Return Do You Need to File?, select Extension of time to file (Form 7004) and click Continue.
  4. Follow the on-screen instructions to print your 7004 form. We'll supply you with the mailing address as well as payment instructions, if needed.
