Personal Tax Extension Form 4868

If you feel that you need more time to prepare your personal tax return, you can file Form 4868 to request an extension of up to 6 months.

The great news is that the extension is automatic! You don’t even have to provide a reason for the IRS to request this extension. This extension is automatic.

Business Tax Extension Form 7004

If your business has a tax filing deadline on April 18, 2023, and you need more time, then it’s time to file an extension Form 7004 to get up to 6 months of additional filing time.

Just like the personal tax extension, this extension is also automatic, and there is no need to provide a reason for the IRS to request this extension. Just file your extension accurately and before the original filing deadline.

Note: Both these extensions do not apply to tax payments. You are still required to pay any taxes due on or before the original deadline.
