Next year, the due dates for various federal tax returns will change based upon the Surface Transportation and Veterans Health Care Choice Improvement Act of 2015 (P.L. 114-41). California Assembly Bill 1775 was passed to conform the due dates of related state tax returns to the federal dates. In 2017, the following changes will take place:

  • Federal Form 1065 / California Forms 568 and 565 will be due on March 15, 2017 (1 month earlier);
  • Federal Form 1120 / California Forms 100, 100S, and 100W will be due on April 15, 2017 for calendar-year filers (1 month later) or the 15th day of the 4th month for fiscal-year filers (1 month later);
  • Federal Form 990 will be due May 15, 2017; and
  • FinCEN Form 114 (FBAR) will be due on April 15, 2017.
