What are the penalties for late filing
Form 1120?

Q

The penalty will be applied either if you have not filed your corporate tax form 1120 or the 7004 extension form.

If a corporation fails to file on time, the IRS will penalize businesses 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 $435.

The penalty will not be imposed if the corporation provides a reasonable cause for failure
to file on time.
