The Surface Transportation and Veterans Health Care Choice Improvement Act of 2015 changed due dates for some 2016 federal business returns (the ones you’ll file in 2017).
Here’s a sample of the changes:
Partnerships (Form 1065) – 2½ months after the close of the tax year. For calendar-year partnerships, that means a due date of March 15.
C corporations (Form 1120) – 3½ months after the close of the tax year. For calendar-year C corporations the due date will be April 15. Note there is a special rule for C corporations with a June 30 year-end. These corporations will not have to comply with the new due dates until after 2025.
S corporations (Form 1120S) – No change. The due date remains 2½ months after the close of the tax year (March 15 for calendar-year corporations).
