Businesses affected by severe winter storms that primarily hit portions of the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic, such as today’s Winter Storm Skylar and last week’s Winter Storm Quinn, have been granted an additional five days to file for an extension. Affected businesses may request a six-month extension to file their 2017 federal income tax returns on or before Tuesday, March 20, 2018 (normally due by March 15th).

Winter Storm Skylar Form 7004, available on, provides a six-month extension for returns filed by partnerships (Forms 1065 and 1065-B) and S corporations (Form 1120S).

If you are an eligible taxpayers taking advantage of this relief, the fastest and easiest way to get an extension is to file this form electronically. If you are filing on paper, please write, “Winter Storm Quinn” or “Winter Storm Skylar,” on Form 7004 extension request.

If circumstances warrant, the IRS may provide additional relief. They will continue to monitor conditions and keep us appraised.
