State of New York Business Income Tax Extensions

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

General Instructions

New York corporation tax returns are due within 2½ months following the end of your reporting period. For calendar year filers, this deadline is March 15. If you cannot file by that date, you can get a New York tax extension.

A New York business extension will give a corporation 6 extra months to file its return. To apply for an extension, use New York Form CT-5 (Request for Six-Month Extension to File). You must file Form CT-5 and pay your estimated New York tax balance by the original deadline of your return (March 15) in order for your extension to be approved. To make an extension payment, use New York Form CT-200-V (Payment Voucher for E-Filed Corporation Tax Returns and Extensions).

Note that most corporations are required to file their New York tax extension electronically through the Department of Taxation and Finance. If you cannot file electronically, you can call (518) 457-5431 to request paper versions of Form CT-5 and Form CT-200-V. To e-file your extension and e-pay your estimated tax, go to New York’s Online Services for Businesses: www.tax.ny.gov/online/bus

A tax extension does not give you more time to pay your New York tax due. To avoid interest and penalties, your state tax balance must be paid by the original deadline (March 15).
