In Case Of Fiscal Year Tax Filers:

In case of Partnerships and S-Corporations, the due date for filing will be 15th of the third month post completion of their tax year. However, there will be no change in the filing date in case of S-Corporations. On the other hand, C-Corporations will have to file their returns on 15th of the fourth month post completion of their tax year. It should be noted that the C-Corporations, whose fiscal year ends on 30th of June, can now postpone their due dates until 31st December, 2025. Those with Employee Benefit Plan can file their returns on the last day of the seventh month post completion of their plan year.

Whether you are an individual, Partnership, S-Corporation, or a C-Corporation, it is important to confirm the due dates for tax filings in your state. This is because your state may have set different due dates that may not be similar to Federal Due Dates.

What are the changes carrying over from 2017 to 2020?

Let’s take a look at various changes that have been introduced in the new Tax Filing Guidelines:

  1.  In case of Form 1065 (partnership income), the extension period has been updated to six months instead of five months.
  2. In case of Form 1041 (Estates and Trusts), the extension period has been updated to five and a half months instead of five months, i.e. extra two weeks.
  3. Those with Employee Benefit plans will get an automatic extension of maximum three and a half months.
  4. In case of Fin CEN 114 – FBAR (foreign banks and financial accounts), the due dates will be similar to that of individual form 1040 with a permitted extension period of six months. In this way, the FBAR and Individual reporting will be aligned.
  5. In case of Form 990 Series, the automatic extension period has been updated to six months instead of three months, ending on 15th November for the calendar year filers.

That was all you needed to know about the latest changes in Tax Filings and now you don’t have to worry about anything. So, feed all these points to your brain and keep yourself away from the wrath of IRS.

I usually don't write reviews much as everyone has different experiences, but definitely wanted to share the positive... experience I have had here and why I would recommend them to all my family, friends and co-workers.I got a referral for here from a friend, so thought of giving them a try over my old CPA firm. I have been going here for a couple years now and have to say they are top notch. They are always responsive and willing to work with me even when I am delayed. I generally like to ask a lot of questions and not once did I feel like they were annoyed by it and would very thoroughly and positively answer all my concerns with detail explanations. Even during the pandemic, they worked with me 100% virtual and it was seamless. Overall, I am very happy with this firm and will continue with them for the foreseeable future.read more

I’ve been going to them for 3 years now for multiple of my businesses. I changed to them after I had problems with my... previous CPA firm and I’m so glad I did! Best decision I ever made for my businesses. They have saved me thousands of dollars over the years as well as deal with my immensely complicated tax filling issues. No matter when I call, they always help answer all my questions (and trust me I have a lot) and put my mind at ease on all my concerns. I feel as if I am family the way they take care of me. The quality of their work has not changed; very consistent and professional. It is an understatement when I say I highly recommend them.read more

I moved to the USA from Canada late 2018 as part of a promotion/relocation for work. For my 2019 returns, I used an... accounting firm recommended by the local Canadian social club in my city, which was a terrible experience. They were slow to respond to inquiries and would follow up in piecemeal requests which dragged out my return process over several months, often asking for information I had already provided.For the price I paid, I vowed to find better service. I found Mohammad online and decided to reach out. Mohammad was extremely responsive, took care of my US and Canadian returns as well as my wife's business returns in a timely manner. Overall, it was a very positive experience and I would recommend him to another in my situation.read more

I relocated to Texas from Alberta, Canada and needed a CPA to help me with my cross-border taxes as I was not happy... with the CPA that I used previously. During my interviewing process to find another CPA, I had good feedback from Mohammad as he was able to answer my questions regarding my unique tax situation with expertise, and importantly to me, in a timely manner. I decided to use his services for the current tax year and I have nothing but compliments for the work Mohammad provided. If you are in need of a professional cross-border CPA, I highly recommend reaching out to Mohammad Akif.read more
