  • General Instruction
  • Business & Non Exempt
  • Individual
Missouri automatically extends a six month of time for both individual and business income tax if you already filed a federal extension. However,application for extension of time to file for state tax is required (Form MO-60 and Form MO-7004) on some specific conditions like if you owe some tax to the state or if you want to extend the period beyond federal extension or if you want only Missouri extension and not federal extension.

For more information for the forms, payments and other payment method details please check the respective section in this page.

Who should file a Form MO-7004?


Missouri grants an automatic extension of time to file corporation income and corporation franchise tax to any corporation that has a federal extension (Form 7004). A federal extension does not extend the due date for Financial Institution taxes.

You do not need to file a Form MO-7004 (Application for Extension of Time to File - Corporation Income Tax/ Franchise Tax Return) unless:
  • You expect to owe a tax liability for the period. Form MO-7004 and payment are due on or before the due date of the return.
  • You want a Missouri extension but not a federal extension. See “Note” below for exception. Form MO-7004 is due on or before the due date of the return. A copy of Form MO-7004 must be enclosed with the Missouri return when filed. An approved Form MO-7004 extends the due date up to 180 days.
  • You seek a Missouri extension exceeding the federal automatic extension period. Form MO-7004 must be filed on or before the end of the federal automatic extension period.
You must complete a separate Form MO-7004 for each return.

Note: You are not required to file a Form MO-7004 if:
  • You have an approved federal extension. (Enclose a copy of your federal extension when you file your Missouri return.)
  • You do not expect to owe additional tax.
  • You anticipate receiving a refund.

An extension of time to file a corporate tax return does not extend the time for payment of the tax. Unless an extension of time to pay has been granted, a penalty of 5% and interest is charged on the part of the total tax which is not paid by the original due date of the return. The interest rate will be posted on our web site at: http://dor.mo.gov/. Remittance should be made payable to “Missouri Department of Revenue” and submitted with this application.
