IRS Rejection Code F7004-905-03

In Form 7004, Line 1, 'ExtensionReturnCd' the return for which the extension is filed must match the return type established with the IRS for the EIN.


These are database validation errors which cannot be corrected by us. You are either entering the wrong type of corporate entity in your tax extension or maybe IRS has you down with the wrong type of entity in their records. What happens for certain, is that you believe you are registered as one type of entity and they have in their records something else and they reject you because what you send does not match their records.

Often, this is because you filed as an S corporation and the IRS has no record of you making an S Corporation election. Making this election is a separate and time consuming process that takes several weeks. To get your extension approved now, it may be worth re-submitting as a C corporation and then following up with the IRS on the S election.
