If you know that you will not have enough time to file your personal taxes by Tuesday, April 17th, quickly apply for IRS Income Tax Extension Form 4868 to receive an extra 6 months to file so you can remove “File Taxes” from your current to-do list.

What is IRS Extension Form 4868?

IRS Extension Form 4868 is used by individual or joint taxpayers to receive an automatic tax extension of up to 6 months to file their personal income tax return.

Due on April 17th, Form 4868 is used by most filers to extend the time for filing the following forms: 

Form 1040, Form 1040A, Form 1040-EZ, Form 1040NR, Form 1040NR-EZ, Form 1040-PR or 1040-SS.

Will Form 4868 Extend My Tax Payment Deadline?

Unfortunately, Form 4868 does not extend the time allotted for making tax payments. If you owe taxes, you must make a payment by your original filing date (April 17th) to avoid expensive tax penalties and interest.
