Question

When I create an extension for a fiscal-year filer, why does Form 7004, line 5a show the return is a calendar and fiscal year return?

Answer

 UltraTax CS completes both the calendar year and tax year beginning and ending date fields for fiscal-year clients to be consistent with the dates at the top of Form 1120. The IRS does not update the extension form every year, so the application reflects the current tax year on Form 7004.
