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

SOLVEDby TurboTaxTurboTax Windows2150Updated January 22, 2022

For tax year 2021, the IRS Form 7004 extends the March 15th deadline for another:

  • 6 months (to September 15, 2022) for Forms 1065, US Return of Partnership Income and 1120S, US Income Tax Return for an S corporation
  • 5.5 months (to September 30, 2021) for Form 1041, US Income Tax Return for Estates and Trusts
  • 6 months (to October 15, 2022) for Form 1120, US Corporation Income Tax Return (unless the fiscal year ends June 30, in which case the return is due September 15, 2022, and the extension gives another 7 months to April 15, 2023).


One way to file Form 7004 is by downloading and printing the form from the IRS website, filling it out according to the IRS instructions, and mailing it to the address given on page 4 of the instructions.

If you're using TurboTax Business to prepare your return, you can also print a 7004 through the program:

  1. With your return open in TurboTax Business, click Search in the upper-right corner and search for extend.
  2. Click the "jump-to" link at the top of your search results.
  3. Select Extension of time to file (Form 7004) and continue.
  4. Follow the instructions to prepare and print your 7004 form. This form cannot be e-filed. We'll provide the mailing address and any payment instructions.
