Filing a Federal Income Tax Extension Request
Requests to file a federal extension with the SD Department of Revenue are due to our office on or before the return was originally due. Each taxpayer is required to file their franchise tax return within 15 days after their income tax return is due. To qualify for an extension to file, send the department the following three items on or before the franchise tax return original due date.
- A cover letter requesting an extension;
- A copy of your Federal Income Tax Extension Request Form; and
- Pay your estimated tax by the original due date. The minimum tax is $200 per return.
Please send a copy of the cover letter and federal extension request to email@example.com. Do not send extension requests through our online Filing and Payment portal. This will delay the processing of your request.
