TX Business Returns - How do I prepare an extension for a 20YY Report Year Filing?
If I am preparing a business return extension for a Texas 20YY report (for an accounting period that ended in 20XX). Generate the extension by making the following entries, on the Report Year 20YY tab:
- Complete the TX EXT screen.
- Enter the Taxpayer Number on TX screen 1, General Information.
- Complete either
- TX screen PIR, 05-102 : Public Information Report
- or TX screen OIR, 05-167 : Ownership Information Report
To get the amount entered on the EXT screen to appear on the extension letter and filing instructions, on TX screen 1, on the Force Form Type drop list, select AB – 05-158A/B – Long form Tax Report.
If filing for a second extension, selection 3 on the TX EXT screen, you will have to override the due date field on TX screen 1 to the needed date in order to change the due date for the TX return.
