If the subject report could not be filed without unreasonable effort or expense
and the registrant seeks relief pursuant to Rule 12b-25(b), the following should
be completed.

(a)  The reasons described in reasonable detail in Part III of this form could
     not be eliminated without unreasonable effort or expense;

     10-K, Form 20-F, 11-K, form N-SAR, or portion thereof, will be filed on or

     prescribed due date; and

(c)  The accountants statement or other exhibit required by Rule 12b-25(c) has

State below in reasonable  detail the reasons why Form 10-K, 11-K, 10-Q,  N-SAR,
or the  transition  report or  portion  thereof,  could not be filed  within the
prescribed time period.

RF Industries  recently discovered some events that will require the auditors to
slightly  change  the  tax  provision  in  the  audited  financial   statements.
Accordingly, the filing of the 10-KSB will be delayed.

     the registrant was required to file such reports) been filed? If answer is
     no, identify report(s).
                                    Yes X       No

3)   Is it anticipated that any significant change in results of operations from
     the corresponding period for the last fiscal year will be reflected by the
     earnings statements to be included in the subject report or portion
                                    Yes X       No

    If so, attach an explanation of the anticipated change, both narratively and
