When & Where to File Form 8832
When to File
As mentioned above, make sure you file your Form 8832 at the correct time, based on when you want your new tax election to take effect. The effective date can generally be no sooner than 75 days before you file Form 8832 and no later than 12 months after you file Form 8832. For example, if you want your election to be active January 1, 2017, you should file the form between January 1, 2016 and March 16, 2017.
So..what happens if I file my 8832 by March 14, and it can take 60 days for the IRS to make a determination, and a 1065 is due March 15?
I am not able to give you tax/legal advice. Therefore, I recommend that you consult with a tax professional who can look at your particular situation and provide you with the right guidance. Based on when you want the election to be effective that will determine when you must file Form 8832.
