Extend Your Individual Income Tax Return Deadline

Spring time is finally here, and along with it comes questions. Questions like when is Easter, will the pollen stink this year, and wait taxes are due when?! The personal tax deadline on April 18th is almost here! However, if you aren’t ready to file then don’t worry, simply head to ExpressExtension to file Personal Tax Extension Form 4868.

Personal Tax Extension Form 4868

Personal Tax Extension Form 4868 is the IRS extension form used by individual or joint taxpayers to receive an additional 6 months to file their individual tax returns. IRS Form 4868 extends the individual tax returns deadline from April 18th, 2017 to October 16th, 2017.

You can e-file IRS Form 4868 with ExpressExtension to receive an automatic extension of the following forms: 


Because IRS Form 4868 is automatic you don’t need to provide the IRS with a valid reason for needing an extension. All you have to do is correctly fill out Form 4868 and transmit it to the IRS by the April 18th deadline. It’s that simple.

However, keep in mind that IRS Form 4868 doesn’t extend the amount of time you have to pay your taxes, on the amount of time you have to file them. Therefore, if applicable, when filing an extension you’ll have to pay a tentative tax to the IRS.

A tentative tax is basically an estimation on the amount of taxes you’ll owe. Some people reference the amount they paid the previous year, but due to economic turbulence, this may not be a viable option. Try to make your estimation as accurate as possible and remember that you can always ask a local CPA or tax professional for assistance.
