IRS Finalizes Automatic Five-Month Extension for Partnership, Trust and Estate Returns
Final regulations set the time for automatic extensions of partnership, trust and estate income tax returns at five months (TD 9531). Under this rule, the extended returns and Schedules K-1 for partners and beneficiaries will generally be due Sept. 15. The regulations also provide for an automatic six-month extension for pension excise tax returns.
Partnership returns subject to the automatic five-month extension under the final regulations are Form 1065, U.S. Partnership Return of Income, and Form 8804, Annual Return for Partnership Withholding Tax. Form 1065-B, U.S. Return of Income for Electing Large Partnerships, is eligible for an automatic six-month extension.
