The tax filing deadlines for Corporations and Partnerships have changed for the 2016 tax year. Beginning for tax years ending December 31, 2016, the due date for tax returns for Partnerships and S-Corporations is March 15th, and the due date for tax returns for C- Corporations is April 15th.
There is no change in the tax return filing dates for Trusts, which remains the 15th day of the fourth month following the close of the tax year. For calendar year Trusts, the return is due April 15th. This change was enacted to allow individuals involved in pass-through entities adequate time to receive the information necessary to prepare their individual tax returns.

Note that for 2016 tax returns, April 15th is a Saturday, so the Government extends the filing deadline to Monday, April 17, 2017.
