E-file an IRS business tax extension with TaxExtension.com
Rhode Island corporation tax returns are due by the 15th day of the 3rd month following the end of the tax year (March 15 for calendar year filers). Rhode Island partnership returns are due by the 15th day of the 4th month following the end of the tax year (April 15 for calendar year filers). If you cannot file on time, you can get a Rhode Island business extension.
To obtain a 6-month state tax extension, corporations and partnerships should use Rhode Island Form RI-7004 (Automatic Six Month Extension Request for RI-1120C, RI-1120S and RI-1065 Filers). Form RI-7004 must be filed by the original due date of your return (March 15 for most corporations; April 15 for most partnerships).
A tax extension only gives you extra time to file — it does not give you more time to pay. You must make a full payment for your Rhode Island estimated tax liability by the original deadline, or interest and penalties will apply. Failing to properly pay your state tax on time will also invalidate your Rhode Island tax extension. You can submit your Rhode Island extension payment with Form RI-7004, or you can pay online via Rhode Island’s Business Tax Filings system: www.ri.gov/taxation/business
