General Instructions

Arkansas corporation income tax returns are due by the 15th day of the 3rd month following the end of the tax year. For calendar year taxpayers, this date is March 15. Getting a state tax extension will extend this filing deadline for 6 months, to September 15.

The State of Arkansas recognizes the Federal business tax extension (IRS Form 7004). Therefore, if you have a valid Federal extension, you will automatically be granted an Arkansas extension for your state business tax return. You do not need to file a separate Arkansas tax extension form. The extended deadline for your Arkansas return will be the same as the extended deadline of your Federal tax return: September 15 for calendar year taxpayers.

If you do not have a valid Federal tax extension or you only want to request an Arkansas tax extension, use Form AR1155 (Arkansas Corporation Income Tax, Request for Arkansas Extension of Time for Filing Income Tax Returns). Make sure to submit Form AR1155 by the original due date of your Arkansas tax return.

Form AR1155 can also be used by corporations requesting an additional 60-day extension beyond the Federal tax extension deadline. Note that you must have “good cause” and submit a written request to the Arkansas Department of Finance and Administration. Also make sure to check the box on Line 2A of Form AR1155.

Remember than a tax extension does not give you more time to pay your state taxes. The State of Arkansas will charge interest and penalties if your tax is not paid by the original deadline (March 15 for calendar year filers). You can make a corporation income tax payment with your Arkansas extension using Form AR1100ESCT (Corporation Income Tax, Estimated Tax Declaration Vouchers).
