  • File Travis Central Appraisal District Business Personal Property Rendition (may be extended to May 15) – this is special for Austin area companies.


  • Due date for Austin startup employees to make contributions to Individual Retirement Accounts (IRAs) for 2023 (Employee Benefits).


  • File the R&D Tax Credit Form 6765 with your tax return. Can extend to October 15. We strongly recommend working with a qualified CPA to prepare this form in conjunction with your Form 1120 if you are a high-growth startup – if your company is going to be acquired by a major technology company, that company’s CFO will use a strong tax team to do due diligence on this.


  • Federal Quarterly Estimated Tax 1st installment (first quarter 2024).


  • C Corp Form 1120 Tax Return due. The Federal Form 1120 is the U.S. Corporation Income Tax Return, which the IRS has companies use to report their income, losses, credits, etc., and to figure the income tax liability of the corporation. Can extend the deadline to Oct. 15. All Austin startups are required to file this Federal form by this deadline unless they file an extension.
