March 15 Deadline – Partnerships and S Corps

Friday, March 15, 2024, is the deadline for filing calendar-year partnership and S corporation returns. These returns must be e-filed or postmarked by midnight local time. Fiscal-year returns are due on the 15th day of the 3rd month following an entity’s year-end.  

Both partnerships and S corporations can apply for a six-month extension. Payment must accompany the return or extension if taxes are due. An extension of time to file does not extend the time to pay.

For more information about deadlines, extensions, and submitting payments for Forms 1065 and 1120-S in Drake Tax, view the March Due Date and Extensions video at > Training > Videos > Business Returns > March Due Date and Extension.
