12056: NH - Interest Dividend and Business Tax Return Extension


New Hampshire

How do I request an extension of the New Hampshire Interest and Dividends Tax, Business Enterprise, or Business Profits taxes?

 

Use the STEX screen to generate extensions, if needed. Extensions are not eligible for e-filing through software vendors at this time. See the FAQ page in New Hampshire data entry for more specific details and payment options. 

New Hampshire Interest and Dividends Tax

Per the DP-10 Instructions, page 2: 

"If you have paid 100% of the Interest and Dividends Tax determined to be due by the due date of the tax, you will be granted an automatic 7-month extension to file your New Hampshire Interest & Dividends Tax return. If you meet this requirement, you may file your New Hampshire Interest & Dividends Tax return up to 7 months beyond the original due date of the return and you will not be subject to the late filing penalty. Note: An extension of time to file your return is not an extension of time  to pay the tax. 

If you need to make an additional payment, file a Form DP-59-A Extension along with the payment. File online using Granite Tax Connect at www.revenue.nh.gov/gtcThis application and payment must be postmarked on or before the due date of the tax. Failure to pay 100% of the tax due by the original due date will result in the assessment of interest and may result in the assessment of penalties. You are not required to attach a copy of your federal extension to your return. Filing a federal extension does not automatically extend your New Hampshire filing requirements."

New Hampshire Business Enterprise and Business Profits Tax

Per the instructions: 

"Taxpayers who have not paid 100% of their Business Enterprise Tax (BET) and/or Business Profits Tax (BPT) determined to be due by the due date of the tax and are requesting a 7-month extension to file their BET and BPT returns. To make an additional payment in order to have paid 100% of the tax determined to be due, you may submit this form with payment or make your payment electronically by accessing Granite Tax Connect www.revenue.nh.gov/gtc by the original due date of the tax.  An extension will not be granted if 100% of the tax determined to be due is not paid timely. Do not file this form if the Balance Due (Line 5) is negative or zero.

If you have paid 100% of the BET and BPT determined to be due by the due date of the tax, you will be granted an automatic 7-month extension to file your New Hampshire BET and BPT returns WITHOUT filing this form. If you meet this requirement, you may file your New Hampshire BET and BPT return up to 7 months beyond the original due date of the return and you will not be subject to the late filing penalty. Note that an extension of time to file your return is not an extension of time to pay the tax."

If you need to make adjustments to the BT-EXT, additional entries are available from the States tab > NH > Business Tax Return tab > 1 New Hampshire Business Demographics screen > Estimates/Extension tab.
