NCACPA CEO Sharon Bryson just spoke with a representative in the Tax Administration section of the NCDOR who provided the following communication, which is scheduled to be added to their website this afternoon:
2017 State Tax Filing Season for Business Income Taxes to Begin Jan. 11
Raleigh, N.C. – The North Carolina Department of Revenue (NCDOR) will officially open the 2017 tax filing season and begin accepting Corporate Income and Franchise, and Partnership tax returns on Wednesday, Jan. 11, 2017. The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) began accepting returns on Jan. 6.
Taxpayers or preparers who submit a filing prior to NCDOR’s opening should remain mindful that acknowledgements for electronically filed returns will not be received until after Jan. 11.
For calendar year filers, State tax returns are due this year on Tuesday, Apr.18., as the regular deadline of Apr. 15 was extended. The IRS has extended its filing deadline to Apr. 18.
Taxpayers and preparers are encouraged to file electronically (eFile). The eFile method expedites processing of returns and refunds and is faster, easier, and more accurate than traditional filing methods. For taxpayers, the eFile method offers payment options including scheduling of automatic bank payments for estimates and extensions.
