Congress Sneaks in IRS Extension and Filing Due Date Changes with the Transportation Bill

Jaime Law

August 20, 2015

On July 31, 2015 President Obama signed into law a transportaion bill, providing funding for highway transportation issues and veterans healthcare.  The bill also included some unexpected modifications to tax return and extension dates.

The most notable changes come to the filing deadlines for partnerships and C corporations.  Both due dates have been altered by one month with partnerships having to file one month earlier, and C corporations gaining a month.  This makes partnership due dates March 15 for a calendar year or the 15th day of the third month following the close of the fiscal year.  C corporations now have to file by the 15th of the fourth month following the close of their fiscal year.  The good news is both are allowed a six month extension (in most cases) through 2026.

The new due dates apply to the taxable years following December 31, 2015, so generally, this will be a non-issue until you file your 2016 returns in 2017.
