Oh no, we hope tax season didn’t sneak up on you! We’re well aware that taxes can be a pretty taxing process, and sometimes it’s easier to procrastinate than to face them head on. That’s a dangerous game to play because you could end up missing an important deadline. For example, the tax deadline for W-2s and 1099-MISC is already here, January 31st!
If you aren’t ready to file, don’t panic! Simply file an extension form 8809 before January 31st at midnight!
Extension Form 8809
Form 8809 is here to save the day if you need more time to file your W-2s, ACA information, or information with the IRS. If you catch yourself in a bind, this is the form you need to fill out for 30 extra days to file. It will extend your deadline to file from January 31st to March 2nd!
Now the deadline for extension form 8809 for W-2 and 1099-MISC (NEC) only is January 31st. For forms W-2G, 1094-C, 1095, 1097, 1098, 1099, 3921, 3922, and 8027 the deadline is March 31st.
It’s important to remember that form 8809 is not an automatic extension. This means that you have to provide the IRS with a valid reason for needing an extension. The acceptable reasons vary from being out of town, being a new business without enough time to file, and more.
If your extension is accepted by the IRS you won’t hear from them. However, if your extension is rejected a notice will be mailed to the person or business entity that filed for the extension.
You should be good to go if your extension is accepted, by the IRS reserves the right to terminate that extension at any time, so keep an eye on your mail. If your extension is terminated you will receive a notice in the mail that’s sent out at least 10 days prior to the extension termination date.
