Business Privilege Tax (Forms CPT and PPT)

Automatic Six-Month Extension to File Form CPT and PPT: With the exception of the financial institutions, the Department of Revenue is now following IRS filing and extension dates for taxpayers filing form / taxable year 2018 return CPT or PPT. The six month extension will be granted automatically for filing the Business Privilege Tax return. For financial institutions, the Department will follow the filing and extension dates of the Alabama Financial Institution Excise Tax return. An automatic extension to file will be granted for the corresponding period and time requested, if granted for the Financial Institution Excise Tax return. However, an extension to file the return is not an extension of time for payment of the tax. The amount of tax due must be paid on or before the original due date of the return without consideration of the extension to file the return. Form BPT-V must accompany all business privilege tax payments, unless payments are made electronically. NOTE: No paper or electronic extension form is needed to be filed to obtain the automatic extension to file.
