2019 Corporation Business Tax returns (Forms CBT-100, CBT-100U, BFC-1, BFC-1-F, and CBT-100S) are currently in the process of being finalized, which is delaying the start of the filing season.
Taxpayers with accounting periods ending between July 31, 2019, and November 30, 2019, have been granted an automatic extension to file their tax returns by April 15, 2020. The taxpayer will not be charged late filing penalties if the return is filed by the April 15, 2020, extended due date. The extension applies only to the filing of the return and does not extend the time to make all required payments.
In addition to the automatic extension, taxpayers can submit the Corporation Business Tax Tentative Return and Application For Extension of Time to File, Form CBT-200-T, which provides a 6-month extension. However, the return will be due 6 months from the original due date.
