Signature General Instructions What’s New Due Date Alert: Under AS 43.20.030(a), Alaska corporate filing due dates are 30 days after federal filing due dates. Because of recent federal legislation, certain Alaska corporate filing due dates have changed, including the due date for Form 6230. See “When to File” below for details. Who May File Any corporation that overpaid its estimated tax for the tax year may apply for a quick refund if the overpayment is: • At least 10% of the expected tax liability and • At least $500 The overpayment is the excess of the estimated income tax the corporation paid during the tax year over the final income tax liability expected for the tax year, at the time this application is filed. When to File For most corporate income tax filers, Form 6230 must be filed by the 15th day of the 5th month after the end of the tax year. For tax periods ending in June, however, Form 6230 must be filed by the 15th day of the 4th month after the end of the tax year (October 15). In all cases, Form 6230 must be filed before the corporation files its income tax return. Do not file Form 6230 before the end of the Title Date corporation’s tax year. An extension of time to file the corporation’s tax return will not extend the time for filing Form 6230.

Form 6230 is an Alaska Corporate Income Tax form. While most taxpayers have income taxes automatically withheld every pay period by their employer, taxpayers who earn money that is not subject to withholding (such as self employed income, investment returns, etc) are often required to make estimated tax payments on a quarterly basis. Failure to make correct estimated payments can result in interest or penalties.
About the Corporate Income Tax
The IRS and most states require corporations to file an income tax return, with the exact filing requirements depending on the type of company.
Sole proprietorships or disregarded entities like LLCs are filed on Schedule C (or the state equivalent) of the owner's personal income tax return, flow-through entities like S Corporations or Partnerships are generally required to file an informational return equivilent to the IRS Form 1120S or Form 1065, and full corporations must file the equivalent of federal Form 1120 (and, unlike flow-through corporations, are often subject to a corporate tax liability).
Additional forms are available for a wide variety of specific entities and transactions including fiduciaries, nonprofits, and companies involved in other specific types of business.
