Extension date

The day on which the first option either expires or is extended.

Extension Date

1. In options, the expiration date. Occasionally, the parties to an option contract will agree to extend the expiration to a certain date in the future.

2. In taxes, the day that one must file one's return if one asked the tax agency for more time to do it. For example, in the United States, the deadline to file tax returns is April 15. If a taxpayer is unable to make this deadline, he/she may ask the IRS for an extension until October 15. In this case, October 15 is the extension date.

3. In an offer for bids on a contract, the date to which a deadline is lengthened. If there is either a lack of interest or no good bids on a contract, the company or government offering it may extend the deadline to allow other companies to decide whether to make a bid. This second deadline is the extension date.
