When is a short-period tax return due?

California has a paperless extension that allows late filing for most business entities, except limited liability companies. Tax is generally due on either the 15th day of the 3rd or 4th month after the close of a tax year depending on the type of business entity and tax return filed. Therefore, the tax for a short-period corporate tax return generally is due on the 15th day of the 3rd month after the close of the short-period tax year, unless provided otherwise in the law.
