E-File An Extension For The Individual Tax Return Before The Deadline

The individual tax return deadline is Tuesday April, 15. If you know you need more time, ExpressExtension provides Form 4868 - Personal Tax Extension, to extend your time to file. You do not need to explain why you are asking for the extension, but you are required to properly estimate your 2013 tax liability and file Form 4868 by the April 15th deadline.

What is a Form 4868?

IRS Form 4868 - “Application for Automatic Extension of Time To File U.S. Individual Income Tax Return,” is used to apply for an additional 6 months to file Form 1040, 1040A, 1040EZ, 1040NR, 1040NR-EZ, 1040-PR or 1040-SS.

Who is Form 4868 for?
  • All 1040 Personal Federal Returns
  • Sole Proprietorships 
    • A sole proprietorship is the simplest and most common structure chosen to start a business. It is an unincorporated business owned and run by one individual with no distinction between the business and you, the owner. You are entitled to all profits and are responsible for all your business’s debts, losses and liabilities.
  • Single Member LLC
    •  a limited liability company that has only one member.
What you will need to file?

Gather the personal data the IRS requires for you to file a tax extension Form 4868: your name, address, social security number. If you’re married and filing jointly, you’ll need the same information for your spouse. Make sure the information you have matches what the IRS has on record. You can verify your information with them by calling 1.800.829.1040.

Once you’ve got your information and estimation in hand, you can create an account with ExpressExtension and simply follow the directions to transmit your Form 4868 to the IRS. Check out this great video for more information on filing a Personal Tax Extension:
