Filing an Extension
At the current time, the IRS has not extended the tax filing deadline of April 15th. If you are unable to complete your tax return by the deadline, you may want to file Form 4868 with the IRS by April 15th. This allows you an additional six months to file. If you anticipate receiving a refund, simply complete the form and mail to the IRS or file the form online. If you anticipate owing money, you will need to make your estimated payment due by April 15th to avoid penalties.
