14117: 1120S - Late Penalties


1120S Sub S Corporate

What late penalties are there for an 1120S? 
 

There are two late penalties that may be incurred with regard to the 1120S: 

  • Late Filing 
  • Late Payment of Tax

Note: Interest is also charged on taxes paid late, even if an extension of time to file is granted, and on penalties imposed for failure to file, negligence, fraud, etc.. 

Late Filing

A penalty may be charged if the return is filed after the original or extended due date of the return as follows:

  • If no tax is due, the penalty is $205 for each month or part of a month (up to 12 months). 
  • If tax is due, the penalty is $205 for each month or part of a month (up to 12 months), plus 5% of the unpaid tax for each month or part of a month the return is late, up to a maximum of 25% of the unpaid tax.
  • The minimum penalty for a return that is more than 60 days late is the smaller of the tax due or $210.

​Late Payment of Tax

A corporation that does not pay the tax when due, generally, may be penalized 1/2 of 1% of the unpaid tax for each month or part of a month the tax is not paid, up to a maximum of 25% of the unpaid tax.
