Change is in the air when it comes to tax filing deadlines for the 2016 reporting year. Most of the changes were included in the Surface Transportation Act of 2015, which included 2016 effective dates.
Some deadlines are being significantly compressed while other entities will have an additional 30 days to file. Additionally, some filers will have a more generous extension. The following chart provides important information about the changes and effective dates.
Please note: There are no changes for S corporations and Individual Form 1040s.
As always, it is important for you to consult with your tax advisor on which rules and deadlines apply to your situation. If you have any questions, please contact Smith & Howard’s tax department at 404.874.6244 or simply fill out the form below.
