Florida Filing Due Date: Business tax returns are due by May 1st (i.e. the 1st day of the 4th month following the end of the taxable year, for fiscal year filers).
Extended Deadline with Florida Tax Extension: Florida offers a 6-month extension of time to file. For example, if your Florida business return is due by May 1, an extension will move the filing deadline to November 1.
Florida Tax Extension Form: To request a Florida business extension, submit Form F-7004 by the original deadline of your return. Form F-7004 can be filed by paper mail or e-filed online using Florida’s “File and Pay” e-Services system.
Florida Extension Payment Requirement: An extension of time to file is not an extension of time to pay. If you owe Florida tax, your balance must be paid by the original due date, or penalties and interest will be charged. You can make a Florida extension payment with Form F-7004, or pay electronically via Florida e-Services.
Florida Tax Extension Tip: The State of Florida will NOT accept an approved Federal tax extension in lieu of the Florida extension application. You must file Florida Form F-7004 if you want to obtain a Florida tax extension.
