What is Form 1041?

Q

Form 1041 is used by estates, trusts, and bankruptcy estates to report the income, gains, losses, deductions, credits, income tax liability of the estate or trust to the IRS. It is also used to report any employment taxes on wages paid to household employees.

When is the due date to file Form 1041?

Q

Form 1041 is due by the 15th day of the fourth month following the end of the tax period. For businesses operating on the calendar tax year, the due date is April 15, 2021. The due date will vary for organizations operating in the fiscal tax year. Find your due date here.

Can trust & estates apply for a 1041 extension?

Q

Trusts and estates that need more time to file their 1041 tax return can apply for an extension using IRS Form 7004 to extend their filing deadline up to 6 months.

An estate (other than a bankruptcy estate) and a trust filing Form 1041 are eligible for an automatic 5½-month extension of time to file by filing form 7004.

As this is an Automatic Extension, it doesn’t require any reason why you need an extension of time to file form 1041. Filing this extension on-time helps businesses to avoid penalties.

Note: The extension of time only applies to filing the tax return, not for the tax payment.
