13. What if I need more time?
Your completed form is due 30 days after receipt. If you cannot return your completed form within that time, please visit the SBO Online Services to request a time extension.
If your 2007 SBO form requests information that is not in your available business records, you may use estimates. The Census Bureau has found that estimates from business officials are more accurate than industry averages or other estimates and increase the reliability of statistics when combined with information from other similar businesses.
If you want to clarify the survey request, discuss use of your available business records, or obtain help in preparing an estimate, please call 1-888-824-9954 Monday to Friday, 8 a.m. to 6 p.m., Eastern time. When calling, please refer to the 11-digit Census File Number (CFN) shown in the upper left corner of the address label on the report form.
