What is Form 4868?
Form 4868 is an "Application for Automatic Extension of Time to file U.S. Individual Income Tax Return." It extends your time to file Form 1040, 1040A, 1040EZ, 1040NR, 1040NR-EZ, 1040-PR, or 1040-SS. According to the IRS, to qualify for an extension of your U.S Individual Income Tax Return you must:
- Properly estimate your 2013 tax liability using the information available to you
- Enter your total tax liability
- File Form 4868 by the due date of your return
Please note: An explanation of why you are asking for an extension is not required. Filing Form 4868 does not extend the time for payment of taxes,it's only an extension to file your return.
