The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, passed late December 2017 brought many changes to the tax code, however it did not change the statutory due dates for filing taxes.
Whenever a regular tax filing date falls on a Saturday, Sunday, or a legal observed holiday in the District of Columbia, the due date for returns is pushed to the next business day. In 2019, only a few dates will be adjusted because of this rule.
For calendar year tax returns reporting 2018 information that are due in 2019, the following due dates will apply.
|Form||2019 Tax Filing Due Dates (Tax Year 2018)|

For fiscal year filers:
- Partnership and S Corporation tax returns will be due the 15th day of the third month after the end of their fiscal tax year.
- C Corporation tax returns will be due the 15th day of the fourth month after the end of their fiscal tax year. A special rule to defer the due date change for C Corporations with fiscal years that end on June 30th defers the change until December 31, 2025 – a full ten years.
- Employee Benefit Plan tax returns are due the last day of the seventh month after the plan year ends.
It is important to check when tax returns are due for all states in which taxpayers operate, because individual states may not conform to the Federal filing dates.
