Form 7004 is filed by the companies to get 6 months extension to file their main federal return.
The due date to file Form 7004 is 18th April 2023.
IRS Form 7004 is filed by the businesses to get 6 months extension to file their Form 1120 federal return. For example, if Acme, Inc. is a calendar year company, it will have to file its federal return by 15th April (if not a holiday), but by filing Form 7004, it gets a 6-month extension.
Inkle has been serving 100s of cross-border companies having a subsidiary all across the world. There are a few reasons why a founder would want to file an extension.
Completing their subsidiary financials
In most cases, founders want to make sure that their subsidiary books are matching the parent books.
In some of these countries, March is the year-end followed for federal filings. Companies are so focused on completing their subsidiaries' books that there's little time to focus on closing the parent books and completing the filing.
Getting rid of Unnecessary Deadline pressure
Even if you want to file before 15th April, filing the extension takes away the unnecessary deadline pressure. You can still file the taxes before 15th April and if you are not able to complete the filing by the deadline, you are still covered due to the extension filing.
It's Free 😀
Extension filing is totally free on Inkle. You just have to come to the platform, share a few details and we will file it for you.
Peace of mind
After filing Form 7004, you have 6 months to collate your finances and file the return. This gives you a ton of time to look at everything and file the 1120 form accurately. Filing Form 1120 in urgency might lead to human errors.
New tax changes are complicated
There have been a few changes under section 174 which are making things a lot more complicated for founders. It has become a lot harder to calculate the exact numbers. Also, there is a possibility of the US Congress making further changes to the rule. So, founders are relaxing a bit and want to give themselves some breathing time to make sure that the numbers are correct. We will talk more about the impact on businesses in a separate post.
