State of Kentucky Business Income Tax Extensions

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

General Instructions

Kentucky business tax returns are due by the 15th day of the 4th month after the end of the tax year (April 15 for calendar year filers). If you cannot file by that date, you can request a state tax extension. A Kentucky business extension will give you 6 extra months to file, moving the deadline to October 15.

The State of Kentucky recognizes a properly filed Federal tax extension (IRS Form 7004). Therefore, if you have a valid Federal business extension, you will automatically receive a Kentucky business extension. If you don’t have a Federal extension, you can apply for a state tax extension by making a specific request to the Kentucky Department of Revenue.

A tax extension gives you more time to file, not to pay. Your Kentucky tax balance must still be paid by the original deadline (April 15) to avoid penalty charges. To make a state extension payment, use Kentucky Form 41A720SL (Application for Six-Month Extension of Time to File Kentucky Corporation or Limited Liability Pass-Through Entity Return). If you have a Federal extension and your Kentucky tax balance is zero, do not file Form 41A720SL.
