If you are filing an extension for your corporate income tax return, please read the following to help you decide the amount to pay and how to pay.

As a corporation, you owe a minimum tax of $200 to NC (if you operate in other states, please contact us). However, it could be higher than the $200 for NC based on varying factors that we would not know until we prepare your tax return. If you owed more than $200 for your 2016 NC, we advise paying that same amount for the extension payment this year. The extensions are due March 15, 2018. Once again, the actual amount due when we file your tax return could be different, at which point you would pay the difference. However, it is beneficial to pay whatever you can with the extension, because any amount due that is paid after the due date is subject to penalties and interest.

We will file the extensions for you, but you will need to submit the payment at the following websites. Please be sure to print a copy of the confirmation and provide to us so that we have record of your extension payment.
