Important Business Deadlines and Extensions

The deadlines for businesses are coming up really soon, and if you still need to get all your information together, you should invest in a business tax extension and receive more time to file. A filing extension is automatic – you get it simply by asking the IRS for it. 
But you must file the request for an extension by the deadline you’re expected to meet for filing your return – not to mention that different types of businesses have different due dates and extension periods. Check the following to see which deadline applies to you.
