State of Georgia
Business Income Tax Extensions
Georgia Filing Due Date: Corporation tax returns are due by March 15 — or by the 15th day of the 3rd month following the end of the taxable year (for fiscal year filers).
Extended Deadline with Georgia Tax Extension: Georgia offers a 6-month extension, moving the filing deadline to September 15 (for calendar year taxpayers).
Georgia Tax Extension Form: To request a Georgia extension, file Form IT-303 by the original deadline of your return. You are required to provide a reason for needing the Georgia extension.
Georgia Extension Payment Requirement: An extension of time to file is not an extension of time to pay. Your Georgia tax liability must be paid by the original deadline to avoid penalties. You can make a Georgia extension payment using Form IT-360C, or pay electronically through the Georgia Tax Center (GTC) portal: gtc.dor.ga.gov
Georgia Tax Extension Tip: If you have an approved Federal tax extension (IRS Form 7004), the State of Georgia will automatically grant you a Georgia extension. Remember to attach a copy of your Federal extension to your Georgia return when you file.
