One of the easiest ways to file is through ExpressExtension.com.  As an Authorized E-File Provider, ExpressExtension can securely send your tax information to the IRS instantly. Here are some commonly asked questions about Tax Extensions:

How long does it take to file a tax extension?

With ExpressExtension, the process only takes a matter minutes (about 5 – 10 minutes). The traditional filing process could take days to mail the return, and even longer for the IRS to actually process it.

Do I need a reason to file a Tax Extension?
No.  The IRS does not require any reason to file a tax extension. Just complete the appropriate Tax Extension Form, and submit it by the filing deadline.

What IRS Form do I need to file a Tax Extension?
IRS Form 7004 – Business Tax Extension
IRS Form 4868 – Personal Tax Extension
IRS Form 8868 – Nonprofit Tax Extension

When will I know if the IRS accepts my Tax Extension?
If the Tax Extension is E-Filed through ExpressExtension, you will receive an email notification once the form has been processed by the IRS. This is typically within an hour of E-Filing. The traditional process of paper filing will not provide any sort of notification to let you know if it has been processed.

What information do I need to File a Tax Extension?
A Tax Extension form is fairly simple. All that is needed is basic contact information, filing status/business type, and an estimated tax amount.

What is My Tax Amount?
This is one area where ExpressExtension cannot give advice.  If you have questions about your tax amount, Filing status or Business, you will need to refer to a Tax Professional or the IRS.
