E-file a business tax extension with FileLater.
| GENERAL INSTRUCTIONS
Generally, the Florida corporate income tax return is due:
Any balance of tax owed must be paid in full by the due date of the Florida return. The Florida Partnership Information Return (Form F-1065) is due on or before the first day of the fifth month following the close of the tax year.
If you need an extension you must file a Florida Tentative Income/Franchise and Emergency Excise Tax Return and Application for Extension of Time to File Return (Form F-7004) must be filed with payment of tax by the original due date of the Florida return. You may file Form F-7004 electronically. Properly filing this form will automatically give corporations 6 months from the due date of the return to file the corporate return. For partnerships, the extension will give you 5 months from the due date of your return to file your return.
To receive an extension of time to file your Florida return, Form F-7004 must be timely filed, even if you have already filed a federal extension request. A federal extension by itself does not extend the time to file a Florida return. An extension for Florida tax purposes may be granted, even though no federal extension was granted.
Penalties for failure to pay tax — If you are required to pay tax with your application, failure to pay will void any extension of time and trigger penalties and interest for failure to file a timely return(s)
