September 2023 Business Due Dates

The leaves are changing, the pumpkin spice is brewing, and guess what else is approaching? The fall tax season! Whether you’re a seasoned entrepreneur or a solopreneur just starting out, navigating tax deadlines can be daunting. But fear not, because this guide is here to equip you with the knowledge and tools you need to conquer the fall tax rush.

Mark Your Calendars: Key Dates for Business and Individual Taxes

September 15th
  • S Corporations: If you filed for an extension, your 2022 calendar year income tax return (Form 1120-S) and any taxes due are officially due. Remember to distribute Schedule K-1s and K-3s (or substitutes) to your shareholders.
  • Corporations: Make your third installment of estimated income tax for 2023 (calendar year).
  • Social Security, Medicare, and Withheld Income Tax: Deposit the tax for August payments, if applicable, based on the monthly deposit rule.
  • Nonpayroll Withholding: Same as above, deposit the tax for August nonpayroll withholding payments.
  • Partnerships: If you received a 6-month extension, your 2022 calendar year return (Form 1065) is due. Distribute Schedule K-1s and K-3s (or substitutes) to your partners.

Pro Tip: Weekends and holidays? No sweat! If a due date falls on one, it’s automatically extended to the next business day.

Disaster Relief: Tax Extensions When Nature Strikes

Mother Nature sometimes throws curveballs, and the IRS understands. If you reside in a designated disaster area, your tax deadlines might be extended. Check FEMA‘s website for disaster declarations and the IRS website for updated filing extension dates. For example, disaster-stricken areas in California, Alabama, and Georgia have an extended deadline of October 16th, 2023, for various tax filings and payments.

Beyond the Deadlines: Essential Tax Tips for Savvy Businesses and Individuals

  • Organize Early: Don’t wait until the last minute! Gather all your tax documents throughout the year to avoid scrambling later.
  • Maximize Deductions: Know your eligible deductions and claim them all. Research business-related expenses, home office deductions for freelancers, and healthcare costs, to name a few.
  • Consider professional help: If navigating tax complexities gives you a headache, seek guidance from a qualified tax professional. They can help you optimize your deductions, minimize your tax burden, and ensure compliance.
  • Embrace Technology: Utilize tax software or online platforms to make filing and recordkeeping easier. Many offer automated features and checklists to streamline the process.
  • Stay Informed: Tax laws and regulations change constantly. Stay updated by subscribing to IRS newsletters or trusted financial news sources.

Remember, knowledge is power, and when it comes to taxes, preparation is key. By understanding the deadlines, utilizing helpful resources, and planning ahead, you can conquer the fall tax rush and navigate this season with confidence.
