About Form 4868
First, let’s talk about the Extension Form 4868 and how it works. The Form 4868 is a pretty easy form to file as long as you have all the necessary information. You must complete your request for an extension and submit it to the IRS on or before the original deadline of your form.
In this case, the deadline to file Form 1040 is May 17, 2021, therefore you must file the Form 4868 no later than May 17, 2021. The IRS will not even consider accepting your extension past this point.
It is also important to note that the extension refers specifically to your tax return, not any tax that you owe the IRS. This balance must be paid on the original deadline. No worries, ExpressExtension offers methods for you to make your payment while filing your extension.
Generally filing an extension 4868 successfully will provide you with an additional 6 months to file your return, taking your new deadline out to October 15, 2021. However, this year the IRS gave every taxpayer an automatic extension until May 17, 2021.
Since they provided you with an extra months you can now request an extension for an additional 5 months. This may seem confusing at first, but essentially your extended deadline will still be October 15, 2021.
