Easily Gain Extra Time This Tax Return Period

0
Calendar 15th
We get it and so does the IRS. Things happen and you just aren’t able to meet those deadlines. When you have missing documents it can be pretty tough to get all of your boxes checked off when filing your tax return. Lucky for you there is a way that can get you more time. We are talking up to 6-months worth of time. The original due date is typically April 15, but with the extension, you may not have to submit your forms until October 15th.

If you aren’t sure if you can complete your 2018 federal tax return by the April 15th deadline you may want to get to filing a Form 4868, immediately. It is vital to note that Form 4868 only pushes back the filing of your tax documents. It doesn’t give you extra time to pay any taxes that you might owe. If you think you may owe money this year you’ll need to estimate the amount after filing for your extension.

Penalty Threats


Choosing to file late can get pretty costly. The penalty can bee 5% of the unpaid taxes for each month or partial month it is late. If the return is more than 60 days late, the minimum penalty is $135 or 100% of the unpaid tax, whichever value is smaller.

Don’t stress, where you don’t have to. Form 4868 will give you ample amount of time to get your ducks in a row. If you know you may late go ahead and file for an extension in either of the 3 methods and get up until October 15th on your tax return.

Form 4868 is made up of two parts, identification information is included in part I and individual income tax information will be in part II.


Part I & II

Part I - Identification
  • Name(s)

Part II - Individual Income Tax
