Multistate: Legislation Extending Corporate Tax Filing Deadlines Adopted

Listen to a brief overview of state tax developments this week, including Multistate, or read full Multistate development below.

Detailed Multistate Development

This year, multiple states are considering legislation that would extend the time to file corporate income tax returns so that the federal corporate return and the state corporate return are not due on the same day. In Arizona, recently enacted Senate Bill 1350 provides that the due date for a corporate or exempt organization income tax return that has been extended is seven months after the initial due date of the return. Small business corporations, as defined in Arizona law, do not qualify for the enhanced extension. The change applies to tax years beginning from and after December 31, 2020.  In Arkansas, Act 629 extends the Arkansas income tax return deadline by one month after the due date of the federal income tax return. The Act is effective for tax years beginning on or after January 1, 2021. Similar proposals are under consideration in Alabama, Kansas and Tennessee. Please stay tuned to TWIST for future updates.
