What You Need To Know About Form 4868
Officially titled “Application for Automatic Extension of Time to File U.S. Individual Income Tax Return,” Form 4868 is used to apply for an additional 6 months to file Form 1040, 1040A, 1040EZ, 1040NR-EZ, 1040-PR or 1040-SS. To file a personal extension, you do not need to explain why you are asking for the extension, but you are required to properly estimate your 2013 tax liability and file Form 4868 by April 15th.

Please note that you are still required to pay any tax due by the due date; Form 4868 does not extend the time to pay, only your time to file.
