General Instructions

Georgia C corporation tax returns are due by the 15th day of the 4th month after the end of the tax year (April 15 for calendar year taxpayers). If you need more time to file, you can obtain an automatic state tax extension. A Georgia business extension provides you with 6 additional months to file your C corp busieness tax return, moving filing deadline from April 15 to October 15 (for calendar year filers).

Georgia S-Corporation tax returns are due on the 15th day of the 3rd month after the end of the tax year (March 15 for calendar year taxpayers). 

If you have a valid Federal business tax extension, you automatically receive a corresponding Georgia tax extension. Just make sure to attach a copy of Form 7004 to your Georgia tax return when it’s filed.

If you do not have a Federal extension, you can apply for a Georgia business tax extension using Form IT-303 (Application for Extension of Time for Filing State Income Tax Returns). Note that you will have to provide a reason for requesting an extension on Form IT-303.

Your Georgia tax extension request must be filed by the original deadline of your return (March 15 for most businesses).

Keep in mind, a Georgia tax extension only provides you additional time to file, not to pay any taxes you may have due. Any state tax balance you owe must still be paid by the original due date (March 15). You can use Georgia Form IT-360C (Corporation Income/Net Worth Payment Voucher) to make a state tax payment when an extension is being requested. Or, you can make an extension payment online at the Georgia Tax Center (GTC)
