What is Form 1041?

Form 1041 is an annual income tax return filed by estates, trusts, and bankruptcy estates to report their income, gains, losses, deductions, credits, and 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?

Generally, Form 1041 is due by the 15th day of the 4th month following the end of the organization’s tax period.

For businesses operating on the calendar tax year, the due date is April 15, 2024. The due date will vary for organizations operating in the fiscal tax year. Find your due
date here

How Trust and Estates can apply for a 1041 extension?

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 by 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 upon filing form 7004.

Also, this extension is automatic, and the IRS doesn’t require the filers to provide any reason for requesting an extension of time to file
Form 1041.

Note: Form 7004 extends only the deadline to file the tax returns and not the tax payment deadline.
