The September 3 due date for Corporate Income Tax Additional Information extended to October 27, 2019 (RE: Hurricane Dorian). See entire note under Additional Required Information Due Dates below.


Submit Corporate Income Information

Section 220.27, Florida Statutes, requires an online submission of additional tax information when a Florida corporate income/franchise tax return is filed for a taxable year that begins between January 1, 2018, and December 31, 2019. Most taxpayers will make two separate online submissions (e.g., a calendar year-end taxpayer will generally make one submission for taxable year ending December 31, 2018, and a second for taxable year ending December 31, 2019).

Section 220.27(1)(c), F.S., allows an officer of the taxpayer or a person duly authorized to act on the taxpayer's behalf, including an accountant, to submit the information and certify that the information is true and correct. A taxpayer who fails to provide the additional required information by the required submission date is subject to a penalty of $1,000 or 1 percent of the tax determined to be due, whichever is greater, for each taxable year the information is required.

Additional Required Information Due Dates

A new law (Chapter 2019-168, Laws of Florida, creating section 220.27, F.S.) requires that taxpayers filing a Florida corporate income/franchise tax return (Form F-1120 or F-1120A) for taxable years beginning during the 2018 and 2019 calendar years report additional information to the Florida Department of Revenue. A list of the requirements and information needed are found in Tax Information Publication #19C01-03.

The Department has issued Emergency Order No. 19-002 implementing provisions of the Governor’s Executive Order No. 19-190 (RE: Hurricane Dorian), which states that the Department recognizes emergency preparations for, and response to, Hurricane Dorian may impede taxpayers’ ability to submit Corporate Income Tax (CIT) Additional Information, on or before the September 3, 2019 filing date provided for by law.

Therefore, the Department will consider submissions of CIT Additional Information made on or before October 27, 2019, timely and will automatically waive any penalty under section 220.27(1)(e), F.S., that would otherwise be due. CIT Additional Information due after October 27, 2019, must be submitted within 10 days of the extended due date or the date the related return is filed, whichever is earlier.

For each taxable year that begins during the 2018 and 2019 calendar years, you are required to report the additional information. The additional required information is due the earlier of 10 days after the extended due date of the Florida corporate income/franchise tax return (Forms F-1120 or F-1120A), or 10 days after the tax return is filed.

Questions and Answers

  1. Does a partnership, or a limited liability company (LLC) treated as a partnership, need to submit the additional required information? No. A partnership does not file Form F-1120 or F-1120A, so it does not have to submit the additional required information.
  2. Does a corporation that is tax-exempt under Section 501(c)(3), Internal Revenue Code, need to submit the additional required information? If the corporation filed a Florida corporate income/franchise tax return, it must submit the additional required information.
  3. Does a Sub-S corporation need to submit the additional required information? If the Sub-s corporation filed a Florida corporate income/franchise tax return, it must submit the additional required information.
  4. If a corporation has two short taxable years that begin in 2018 (e.g., January 1, 2018 – May 28, 2018, and May 29, 2018 – December 31, 2018), are two separate online submissions required – one for each taxable year? Yes. For each taxable year that begins during the 2018 and 2019 calendar years, you need to report the additional required information.
  5. Can my accountant submit the online information for my corporation? Yes. Section 220.27(1)(c), F.S., allows an officer of the taxpayer or a person duly authorized to act on the taxpayer's behalf, including an accountant, to submit the information and certify that the information is true and correct.
  6. If an affiliated group files a consolidated Florida Form F-1120 for the taxable year ending December 31, 2018, is a separate submission required for each member of the affiliated group? No. Only one online submission for the affiliated group is required for that taxable year.
  7. If an affiliated group files a federal consolidated income tax return and separate Florida corporate income/franchise tax returns, is a separate online submission for each filed Florida Form F-1120 required? Yes. A separate online submission is required for each Florida Form F-1120 or F-1120A filed, and the information is contained in the pro-forma federal income tax return.
  8. How should online submissions be corrected when an error in the previous submission for a taxable year is discovered? Once the information is submitted and the confirmation page is shown, the submission is complete. A filer can view previously submitted information; however, the system will not allow for accepted information to be edited. To submit corrected information, a filer must resubmit the additional required information for the taxable year. The most recent submission for a taxable year will be considered the correct submission.
