Winter Storm Extension: Many Businesses Have Extra Time to Request A Six- Month Extension

The Internal Revenue Service granted many businesses affected by last week’s severe winter storm additional time to request a six-month extension to file their 2016 federal income tax returns. The IRS is providing this relief to victims & tax professionals affected by last week’s storm (known as Winter Storm Stella) that hit portions of the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic.
Business taxpayers who were unable to file their tax return by March 15, 2017 can request an automatic extension by filing Form 7004, available on IRS.gov, on or before March 20, 2017. Form 7004 provides a six-month extension for returns filed by partnerships (Forms 1065 and 1065B) and S corporations (Forms 1120S).
Eligible taxpayers taking advantage of this relief should write “Winter Storm Stella” on their Form 7004 extension request (if filing Form 7004 by paper). As always, the fastest and easiest way to get an extension is to file this form electronically. The IRS will continue to monitor conditions and provide additional relief if circumstances warrant.
