General Instructions

Alabama Business Privilege Tax Extension

Every business including Mulit Member LLC's, Corporations, disregarded entities (i.e. single-member LLC's), REIT's and Business Trusts, doing business in or is registered/qualified to do business in Alabama, is required to file an Alabama Business Privilege Tax Return and Annual Report. Alabama will grant you an automatic extension to file Alabama Business Privilege Tax Return and Annual Repor, provided you have successfully filed a federal business tax extension. No paper or electronic Alabama business tax extension form is needed to be filed to obtain the automatic extension.

Although an automatic extension is granted by the State of Alabama, payment of the total tax due (including any corporate annual report fees) must be received on or before the original due date of the return. Payments made for a taxable year in which the automatic extension provision is utilized are referred to as automatic extension payments. Form BPT-V must accompany all business privilege tax payments unless payments are made electronically. Payments in excess of $750 must be made electronically. There are a number of electronic payment options available including utilizing the Alabama Interactive - Extension Payments website. Additional payment options are also available. Visit the Payment Options for Corporate Income Tax section of the Alabama Department of Revenue website. 

If your automatic extension payment is less than $750, you can remit your extension payment by check or money order. Make check or money order payable to the Alabama Department of Revenue. The check or money order must be remitted along with a complete Form BPT-V (Alabama Business Privilege Tax Voucher).

Alabama Corporate Tax Extension

Any Corporation that does business or derives income from sources doing business in Alabama and is not specifically exempt under Alabama law, must file an Alabama corporate income tax return by the 15th day of the 4th month following the close of the tax year (April 15th in most years, for calendar year filers). Alabama grants an automatic extension of 6 months to file Alabama Form 20C, the Alabama Corporate Income Tax Return but the full amount of the tax due for a tax year is due, in full, by the original due date of the return. No paper or electronic extension form is needed to be filed to obtain the automatic extension but you must attach a copy of the federal extension (IRS Form 7004) to Form 20C when you file the return. If tax is due, Include Form BIT-V, Business Income Tax Payment Voucher, with any tax payment you make but if your payment exceeds $750, you must make your payment electronically. 

Corporations doing business in Alabama that have made an S corporation election for federal income tax purposes, must file an Alabama S corporation income tax return which is due by the 15th day of the 3rd month following the close of the S corporation's tax year (March 15th in most years for calendar year filers). Alabama grants an automatic extension for taxpayers who file Form 7004 with the IRS. You must attach a copy of the federal extension to the S corporation tax return when it's filed.  Use Form PTE-V, Pass-Through Entity Payment Voucher, with any tax payment unless paying electronically.

If the total of the estimated tax payments made for a tax year is less than the amount of tax due for the tax year, then an automatic extension payment in the amount of the tax deficiency is due by the original due date of the return for the tax year.

Alabama LLC Tax Extension / Alabama Partnership Tax Extension

Subchapter K entities (such as partnerships and multi-member LLCs) must file an Alabama partnership/limited liability company income tax return. Alabama grants an automatic 6-month extension to file Alabama Form 65, Partnership/Limited Liability Company Return of Income provided you have a valid federal extension. Remember to attach a copy of your IRS Form 7004 when you file Alabama Form 65 and that the extension only gives you additional time to file your return, not pay any taxes that may be due.

If your automatic extension payment is less than $750, you can remit your extension payment by check or money order. Make check or money order payable to: Alabama Department of Revenue. Write the corporation's federal employer identification number or the Alabama Affiliated Group’s Federal employer identification number (EIN) for 20C-C, the income tax form number or type of payment (automatic extension payment), and the tax year end on the check. The check or money order must be remitted along with a complete Form BIT-V (Alabama Business Income Tax Voucher). Payments over $750 must be made electronically at Alabama Interactive - Extension Payments
