[[Page 59797]]

    Form: 1120-C.
    Abstract: IRS Code section 1381 requires subchapter T cooperatives 
to file returns. Previously, farmers' cooperatives filed Form 990-C and 
other subchapter T cooperatives filed Form 1120. If the subchapter T 
cooperative does not meet certain requirements, the due date of their 
return is two and one-half months after the end of their tax year which 
is the same as the due date for all other corporations. The due date 
for income tax returns filed by subchapter T cooperatives who meet 
certain requirements is eight and one-half months after the end of 
their tax year. Cooperatives who filed their income tax returns on Form 
1120 were considered to be late and penalties were assessed since they 
had not filed by the normal due date for Form 1120. Due to the 
assessment of the penalties, burden was placed on the taxpayer and on 
the IRS employees to resolve the issue.
