Tax season sometimes just sneaks up on you and suddenly you are in need of more time to file. So what do you do? File a Tax Extension.
What is a Tax Extension?
A tax extension extends the amount of time to prepare and file your tax return with the IRS. Please note: This does NOT extend the amount of time to pay your taxes.
The easiest way to file a tax extension is through an IRS Authorized e-file provider – such as ExpressExtension.com, where filing your extension only takes a few minutes.
When are the deadlines?
