State of Florida Business Income Tax Extensions

E-file an IRS business tax extension with TaxExtension.com

General Instructions

Florida business tax returns are due by either the 1st day of the 4th month after the end of the tax year (April 1 for calendar year taxpayers) or the 15th day following the non-extension deadline for the corresponding Federal tax return (e.g. May 15 if the Federal return is due May 1), whichever is later. If you cannot file on time, you can request a 6-month state tax extension.

Use Form F-7004 (Florida Tentative Income/Franchise Tax Return and Application for Extension of Time to File Return) to apply for a Florida business tax extension. This form must be submitted by the original filing deadline of your Florida tax return. You can file Form F-7004 by paper mail or electronically using the Florida e-Services “File and Pay” system: dor.myflorida.com/dor/eservices/filepay

An extension does not give you more time to pay your Florida tax. To avoid interest and penalties, make sure to pay your state tax balance by the original due date. You can make a state tax payment online with Florida’s e-Services “File and Pay” system (see above link) or mail your payment with a completed Form F-7004.

Note that the State of Florida does not recognize the Federal tax extension (IRS Form 7004), which means that Form F-7004 must be filed to obtain a Florida tax extension, whether or not you have a Federal extension.
