General Instructions

North Carolina business tax returns are due by the 15th day of the 4th month following the end of the tax year. For calendar year filers, this date is April 15. If you cannot file on time, you can get a North Carolina tax extension.

A North Carolina business extension will give you 6 extra months to file, which moves the deadline to October 15 (for calendar year taxpayers). It’s important to note that a tax extension only applies to filing — it does not extend the time you have to pay state income tax. While you aren’t required to make a tax payment with your extension, any balance not paid by the original due date (April 15) will be subject to interest and penalties.

To request a tax extension, use North Carolina Form CD-419 (Application for Extension, Franchise and Corporate Income Tax). If you owe North Carolina tax, remember to make an extension payment with your request and submit Form CD-419 by the original due date of your return (April 15).

The State of North Carolina urges businesses to electronically file (“e-file”) their tax extension. Your extension request can be filed and paid electronically via North Carolina’s Online Filing and Payment system:
