A personal tax extension uses Form 4868, officially called an Application for Automatic Extension of Time to File U.S. Individual Income Tax Return. The key word here is Automatic. The deadline to file a Personal Tax Extension is April 15, 2013. If you don’t think you’ll be able to hit that dreaded April 15 deadline, you can get an extension easily by E-Filing Form 4868. The IRS will grant you an extra six months to file; your new deadline will be October 15.
Please note: IRS Form 4868 does not extend the time for payment of tax. Generally, payment of any balance due according to IRS Form 4868 is required by the due date of the return for which this extension is filed.
