Request an Extension: An extension of time to file a franchise tax report will be tentatively granted upon receipt of a timely request. Timely means the request is received on or before the due date of the original report.
Information Report Only: Corporations, LLCs, Limited Partnerships, Professional Associations and financial institutions must file the Public Information Report (PIR). All other entity types must file the Ownership Information Report (OIR).
Note: For reports due prior to 2016, Limited Partnerships and Professional Associations were required to file the Ownership Information Report.
Common Owner Information Report Only: The reporting entity of a combined group with a temporary credit for business loss carryforward preserved for itself and/or its affiliates must submit common owner information by the due date of the report each year.
This information must be submitted to satisfy franchise tax filing requirements, even if the combined group is not claiming the credit on the current year's report. Failure to satisfy all franchise tax filing requirements will negatively impact the reporting entity's and affiliate members' standing with our office.
