What is the Form 7004?

Form 7004 is the form that needs to be filled out to request an automatic extension time to file certain business income tax, information, and other returns. Certain business includes corporations, partnerships, multiple member LLCs filing as partnerships, and s-corporations.

Many tax filers forget the important point that IRS 7004 Form extends only the time to file the taxes but not to pay the tax amount. The taxpayer must pay the tentative tax by the deadline of March 15th. So here comes the next question. What is the tentative tax?  The tentative tax is the estimated amount of the tax bill. Few tax filers calculate their tax by referencing the tax, which they paid last year. But it is not the best way to calculate the tax amount as there are many changes happening to the business in a year, which may increase or decrease the tax amount.

The IRS never notifies the client if the Form 7004 extension is approved, but it sends a notification email only if the extension is not approved by them. However, the IRS makes the 7004 extensions automatically and they reserve the right to terminate them at any time. Again, a mail will be sent to the concerned person at least before the termination date, in the case of terminated extension.

Form 7004 needs to include the name of the corporation; the address of the corporation’s main office; the employer identification number of the corporation; the amount of the estimated taxes paid during a year; tentative tax liabilities; tax year applicable and the right code corresponding to specific tax forms that will be filed eventually.
