For fiscal year filers:
- Partnership and S Corporation tax returns will be due the 15th day of the third month after the end of their fiscal tax year.
- C Corporation tax returns will be due the 15th day of the fourth month after the end of their fiscal tax year. A special rule to defer the due date change for C Corporations with fiscal years that end on June 30th defers this change until December 31, 2025.
- Employee Benefit Plan tax returns are due the last day of the seventh month after the plan year ends.
It is important to confirm when tax returns are due for all states in which taxpayers operate, because individual states may not conform to the Federal filing dates.
Estimated Tax Payment Due Dates
Our tax system is a “pay as you go” system, meaning that taxpayers are expected to pay in tax, on at least quarterly basis, for the income they have earned. If there is adequate withholding by employers, then this can be a seamless process. Some taxpayers, especially those with dual incomes, fluctuating income, significant passive income, those who are high earners or self-employed, may find themselves under-withheld at tax time. In addition to a significant tax bill, these taxpayers may also find themselves with an underpayment penalty if estimated payments have not been made.
The due dates for estimated tax payments for 2022 individual tax filers are listed below.
|Estimated Tax Payments||Estimated Payment Due Date|
|1st Quarter||April 15th (1/18/2022 for 2022 1Q)|
|2nd Quarter||June 15th|
|3rd Quarter||September 15th|
|4th Quarter||January 15th of the next year (1/16/23 for 2022 4Q)|
