Organization may apply for an extension of time to file their annual reports. 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 from the original due date of the report. Extending the due date of the report also extends the due date for payment of any applicable fees.
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.The organization may also submit an extension request by mail, including by sending a letter or a copy of the organization's federal extension request (Form 8868). Again, the request must be received by the Department before the original due date to avoid a deliquency fee. If you would like acknowledgement that your mailed extension request has been received, you should enclose an additional copy of the request and a self-addressed stamped envelope.
