How to Get More Time to File Your 2017 Tax Return

0

Spring is here, making it a little more interesting to drive with major storms hitting the road. Some areas have been hit by severe storms, tornadoes, and even snow! However, the intense weather is not the only scary thing that comes with spring, because it is also tax time! Make sure you are up to date on the upcoming personal and truck tax deadlines.

How to Get More Time to File Your 2017 Tax Return

Typically, Tax Day is April 15th, but this year it falls on Sunday and Monday is Emancipation Day, a legal holiday in Washington, D.C. The Official Tax Day Deadline is April 17th, 2018.





Need More Time To File?

The IRS is far more forgiving about doling out additional time than you might expect when it comes to the 2018 personal tax deadline. Filing an income tax extension is easier than you might think, especially if you e-file a tax extension online. You can file tax extension Form 4868 for an automatic six-month extension to submit your federal income tax return without penalties.

If you submit your application to the IRS by midnight on April 17, 2018, you will receive an additional six months to file your tax return without incurring IRS penalties.

However, while Form 4868 does give you an extension of time to file income returns, it does not extend the time to pay. If you are unable to make your tax payment, you will need to pay penalties and interest, It is recommended that you pay as much of the owed taxes as possible to lower your penalty cost.

What You Need to File a Federal Income Tax Extension

Assuming you file on time, you will automatically receive six months to file your return to the IRS, and you will not be subject to late-filing penalties. You will have until October 15th, 2018 to file your tax return. 


To file for a tax return extension, you will need:
  • Your name and address
    • Spouse’s name if filing jointly)
  • Your Social Security Number (SSN
    • Spouse’s SSN if filing jointly
  • Estimated total tax liability for the 2017 tax year
  • Totally 2017 tax withholding and tax payments
  • Estimated tax payment owed to the IRS (If any)
