While it is important to file your taxes on time, sometimes, for any number of reasons, this is simply not an option. In those instances, rather than ignoring the deadline, it is important to file a tax extension to avoid penalties associated with late filing. If you file an accurate tax extension return, you may be able to get an automatic 6-month extension. There are many different ways to request a tax extension; however, it is recommended that, to ensure you file the federal tax extension forms accurately, you will need professional help.
What do I need to file a Federal Tax Extension?
Most people think they need to get a good reason or be able to rationalize why a federal tax extension is required. We can tell you that is not the case. In fact, IRS tax extensions are automatic, not requiring a detailed explanation or rationale for requesting an extension. This will be granted without question—as long as you file the tax extension forms accurately. That is why it is so important to hire professional help that can ensure you file the extension properly. Should it be filed inaccurately, you will be challenged and will not receive an automatic tax extension.
What if I owe?
While the tax extension will allow an additional 6 months to file your tax return, it is important to note that if you owe money to the IRS, you must pay your tax in full by April 15th, otherwise you will incur penalties and interest on your outstanding balance. The failure to pay, however, is 0.5% per month plus interest when the penalty for not filing is 5% per month, so it pays to seek that tax extension regardless.
