An organization may apply for an extension of time to file. Extension requests must be received on or before the due date of the report to avoid a delinquency fee. The Charitable Activities Section grants extension requests for up to 180 days.
Organizations requesting extensions on-line will receive confirmation via e-mail that the request has been received. Once you receive this e-mail confirmation, you should assume that your extension request has been granted unless you hear otherwise from our office. In the event your request is denied, to avoid a delinquency penalty, the annual report must be submitted by the later of the due date or within 10 days after the organization receives notice of denial of the requested extension.The organization may also submit a written request so long as the Charitable Activities Section receives the request on or before the due date of the report. The organization should include the reason why additional time is necessary in the written request. Sending the Section a copy of organization's federal extension request on Form 8868 is also sufficient to obtain an extension for the period covered by the Form. If you would like acknowledgement that your extension request has been received, you should enclose an additional copy of the request and a self-addressed stamped envelope.
