An Overview of IRS Form 7004


IRS Form 7004 is used to request an automatic extension of time to file certain business income tax, information, and other returns for up to 7 months.

The extension gets granted if you properly complete Form 7004 with the IRS, make a proper estimation of owed taxes (if applicable), and file the 7004 form by the due date along with paying any tax that is due.

Filing IRS Form 7004 does not extend the time to pay your tax. Taxes are still due by the original deadline, but the tax return does not need to be organized and submitted until the extended period.

Submitting an extension allows more time to organize all the necessary paperwork, and it also gives you and your accountant more time to make sure that you get the most out of your credits or refunds.
