Extension requests should be made electronically by filling out the information below. After your extension request has been submitted successfully, a message will appear indicating that the electronic request was received. If the message does not appear, it is because your extension was not properly transmitted. For multiple filers, the message should appear after each submission. Once your extension request has been received and approved, you should receive an e-mail (sent to the e-mail address you provided with your extension request) stating that your extension request was granted and indicating your new registration deadline. For multiple filers,
you should receive an e-mail for each request you submit. This e-mail should be received within 24 hours of your electronic extension request. If you do not receive an e-mail, it may be because your request was not properly submitted, you provided an incorrect e-mail address, or the e-mail response was sent to your spam folder. You should save a copy of the e-mail for your records.
Those unable to make an electronic extension request may mail in an extension request using the Mail-in Extension Request Form. Mail-in filers will not receive any written acknowledgment that the extension request was received or granted. To check if an extension request has been granted, you may look up the organization online at Charities Search. If the extension request has been granted, the charity's specific search result should indicate "Granted" in the "Extension" category.
