The Department of Revenue is giving Kansas corporations more time to file returns due to the complexity of the 2017 Federal Tax Reform legislation.
Corporations filing Kansas tax returns will have an additional 30 days with no penalty, making the new deadline November 15. While the extension applies to filing corporate returns, it does not correspond to the deadline for corporate tax payments, which are required to be submitted on the 15th day of the fourth month following the end of the corporation’s tax year.
The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act significantly changed the landscape of tax law for corporations, and the extra time is designed to give corporate filers more time to ensure accuracy and compliance with the new law.
The extension applies to 2018 corporate income tax returns filed by November 15, or within an additional month for an extended 2018 corporate income tax return for corporations that file on a fiscal year basis.
