Form 7004, Application for Automatic Extension of Time to File Certain Business Income Tax, Information, and Other Returns, with the IRS, is exactly what it sounds like. This is an IRS extension form that allows businesses to apply for up to an additional six months to file their tax returns.
This is an automatic extension meaning the IRS doesn’t require any explanation, just an accurate form filed by your original deadline.
It’s important to note that Form 7004 extends only the deadline for filing, and you are still required to pay the taxes due (if any) within the original deadline.
