Highway Act makes both partnership and S corporation returns due March 15th following the close of the calendar year (or 15th day of the third month following the close of a fiscal year) for years beginning after 12/31/15. The tax filing deadline for C corporations is changed to April 15th (or 15th day of the fourth month following the close of a fiscal year) for returns for years beginning after 12/31/15. However, for C corporations with a 6/30 year end, the changes are effective for years beginning after 12/31/25. The automatic extension period for these returns has also been adjusted. The Highway Act includes other tax compliance provisions.
