Form 8809-EX is a Federal Corporate Income Tax form. The IRS and most states will grant an automatic 6-month extension of time to file income tax and other types of tax returns, which can be obtained by filing the proper extension request form. Obtaining an extension will prevent you from being subject to often very large failure-to-file penalties. However, in most cases this extension does not exempt you from the requirement to pay any tax owed in full by the return's original filing date.
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.
