“Tax Day” is Finally Here, File an Extension for an Additional 5 Months!
You knew it was coming, but it still snuck up on you. IRS deadlines are sneaky like that! If you haven’t filed your personal taxes yet, don’t lose hope, there is another option for you.
You can request an additional 5 months to file your personal tax return, Form 1040. This will give you until October 15, 2021 to complete your return.
Here’s the rundown on how to complete your Form 4868 extension before midnight.
Get your Information Together
The quickest way to complete your extension is to gather the information you need to complete it. Form 4868 is only 9 lines, and they probably won’t all apply to you. So, once you have the necessary information, the filing process will go by pretty quickly.
Remember that everything you enter on your 4868 must match the IRS records.
Here is the information you need to file:
- Your legal name and address
- Your SSN
- Your spouse’s SSN
- Your total tax liability
- This can be estimated using the IRS Tax Withholding Calculator or by consulting a tax professional.
- Information about any payments you have already made towards your total tax liability
- A method of payment for paying your balance due, if applicable

E-file your Form 4868, Don’t Mail it
Speed is key here, but most importantly, so is accuracy. Rushing to file an extension and reporting incorrect information or information that doesn’t match IRS records won’t do you any good. Your form could be rejected.
E-filing tax forms is the IRS’ preferred method for a reason. When filing electronically, you are much more likely to catch simple errors and mistakes. Not to mention the IRS is able to process these forms at a much faster rate than their paper counterparts.
