2021 Franchise Tax Extension Due Dates

Due to statewide inclement weather in February, the Texas Comptroller of Public Accounts automatically extended the original due date for 2021 Texas franchise tax reports to June 15, 2021.

As a reminder, the extended due dates did not change. If a taxable entity required to make its franchise tax payments by electronic funds transfer (mandatory EFT) filed for a franchise tax extension on or before June 15, the extended due date is Aug. 16. For all other taxable entities not required to make mandatory EFT payments that filed for a franchise tax extension on or before June 15, the extended due date is Nov. 15.
