Reasons For Filing an IRS Tax Extension


Filing taxes after the deadline typically means that you will incur some pretty harsh penalties by the IRS.  However, there are a few situations in which the IRS does grant more time to file a tax return.

Out of Country:  Individuals who live and work out of the country automatically receive a two month extension without filing a Form 4868.  However, a return must be filed by October 15 at the latest.  This also applies to US military personnel working overseas.

Combat Zone:  In general, the deadlines for performing certain actions applicable to taxes are extended for the period of service in a combat zone, plus 180 days after the last day in the combat zone. This extension applies to the filing and paying of income taxes that would have been due April 15.

Reasonable Cause:  The IRS does also waive penalties for those individuals and businesses that had Reasonable Cause to not file or pay on time.  This is a more subjective reason to be reserved for the most extreme circumstances, and to be determined by the IRS.

Extend Your Deadline:  An individual, business, or nonprofit organization may elect to file for an extension of up to 6 months.  This is not an extension of time to pay, this is an extension of time to file the return itself.

ExpressExtension.com allows anyone to E-File the following Tax Extension Forms simply and easily:

  • IRS Form 4868: Personal Tax Extension of 6 months
  • IRS Form 8868: Non-Profit/Exempt Extension of 3 months and additional 3 months

All that is needed to file this form is a basic knowledge of the business as well as its official tax status.  Most of this information can be found on a previous year’s tax return as long as that information has not changed.  Important data such as the official business type and also the specific IRS tax return type needs to be entered in this Form.  If you are unsure of this information, please check a previous return or a tax professional.

Obviously the best way to avoid penalties and interest is to simply file on time! If you have any questions about filing Tax Extensions, you can call, email or chat online with the Express Tax Support Center in Rock Hill, SC at 803-514-5155 between the hours of 8am – 6pm EST, Monday through Friday or email support@ExpressExtension.com.

Tips For E-Filing IRS Tax Extensions

When filing a Tax Extension for your personal, business, or nonprofit return, the simplest way to file this with the IRS is to E-File the appropriate form.  The IRS has authorized ExpressExtension.com as an official E-File Provider for Personal Tax Extensions with IRS Form 4868, Business Tax Extensions with IRS Form 7004, and Nonprofit Tax Extensions with IRS Form 8868.


A Business Tax Extension must be filed by March 15, 2013, and once they are processed by the IRS, you will be granted an automatic 5 or 6 month tax extension. The exact length of time that your tax deadline is extended depends on your business type.  The Form 7004, otherwise known as a Business Tax Extension can be used by Multi-Member LLCs, C-Corporations, S-Corporations, Partnerships, Trusts and Estates. Certain Partnerships, Trusts, and Estates are only able to apply for a tax extension of 5 months instead of the 6 month extension; this is determined by which tax form they would be filing for their return.

A common question that businesses may have is in regard to different types of LLCs.  When filing a business Tax Extension, it is necessary to know what type of LLC the business is. There are 3 primary types: Single Member LLC, Multi Member LLC, and Multi Member LLC (setup as a corporation).  A Single Member LLC would not need to file a Business Tax Extension, because its information would be included in its personal tax return. The two types of Multi Member LLCs are different in that one is incorporated, while the other is not. A standard LLC is not incorporated unless it has gone through the additional requirements and processes to become a corporation.

There are also small differences between different Corporation Types.  C Corporations and S Corporations have some similarities and differences, but it is important to know the differences and your specific type when filing a tax return.  The primary difference between C Corporations and S Corporations is that C Corps, which are standard corporations, are separately taxable entities. S Corporations are considered to be pass-through entities in which the profits and losses are passed through to the owners’ tax returns.

A Personal Tax Extension must be filed by April 15, 2013 for an automatic 6 month tax extension.  IRS Form 4868 can be used by Individuals, Contractors, Single Member LLCs, and Sole Proprietors to file their tax extension.

Non Profit Organizations must be filed by May 15, 2013 for a 3 Month Tax Extension.  IRS Form 8868 can be used by Non-Profit and Exempt Organizations and it is possible to E-File for an additional 3 months through ExpressExtension after the first extension has expired.  

Although filing a Tax Extension with ExpressExtension.com is typically a very quick process, one must be familiar with all the general information about their business in order to file any type of tax extension.

An IRS tax extension is meant to extend the amount of time that a person has to file a return.  It does not extend the amount of time to pay the taxes due. The IRS will still expect to receive the estimated tax amount upon the deadline.  Businesses are required to pay the full tax amount at the due date.  Individuals, however, are allowed to pay less than the total amount due. An installment plan can be setup with the IRS, and/ or penalties and interest depending on the exact situation.  Please consult with the IRS directly in this type of situation.

If you have any questions about filing Tax Extensions, you can contact the Express Tax Support Center in Rock Hill, SC at 803-514-5155 between the hours of 8am – 6pm EST, Monday through Friday or email support@ExpressExtension.com.

What You Need To Know About IRS Tax Extensions


Filing a Tax Extension with the IRS can delay your tax return deadline by up to 6 months.  Filing a tax extension can be very helpful to those with very complicated tax returns.  The additional time to file the return can give taxpayers and tax preparers more time to prepare the return. This allows for better attention to be paid to the little details of each return so that you may get the most out of your credits or refunds.

IRS Form 7004: This form is used by businesses such as Multi-Member LLCs, C Corporations, S Corporations, Partnerships, Trusts, and Estates. This is commonly referred to as a form for Business Tax Extensions. This IRS Form gives a Tax Extension of 5 – 6 months and is due by March 15, 2013.

IRS Form 4868: This IRS form is used for filing Individual or Personal Tax Extensions. This can be used to extend the tax deadline by 6 months for personal returns, 1099 Contractors, Sole Proprietorships, and Single-Member LLCs and is due by April 15, 2013.

IRS Form 8868: Non-Profit and Exempt Organizations can use the Form 8868 to apply for an automatic 3 month tax extension or a non-automatic additional 3 month extension and is due by May 15, 2013.

Filing a Tax Extension does not mean that taxes will not be due.  This simply means that the tax return itself does not need to be filed until the later deadline.  The IRS still expects full tax payment of any taxes due.  If you are expecting any credits or refunds, you can use the extended time to organize the appropriate paperwork in order to maximize your refunds or credits.

The great advantage of E-Filing this form is the speed at which the return can be accepted.  Once the form is submitted through ExpressExtension.com it is typically accepted within minutes of filing.  If you are incredibly close to the deadline, this helps ease concern of late penalties.  Instead of waiting on the postal mail to deliver this form, or driving to the IRS office itself, it can be stress relieving to submit this form directly from your home or office.

If you have any questions about filing Tax Extensions, you can call, email or chat online with the Express Tax Support Center in Rock Hill, SC at 803-514-5155 between the hours of 8am – 6pm EST, Monday through Friday or email support@ExpressExtension.com.
