Electronic Filing

Electronic filing, or e-file, reduces the time it takes to get your tax refund and reduces common errors such as mathematical errors. You must have a valid Taxpayer Identification Number (TIN) for every person included on the return.

Extension - Electronic Filing

The IRS offers electronic filing of extension applications. The IRS will process Form 4868, Application for Automatic Extension of Time to File U.S. Individual Income Tax Return, through April 15, 2015. Paper requests for extension must be postmarked by April 15, 2015. By filing an extension, you generally postpone the filing date of your return until October 15, 2015. Filing an extension only extends the time to file the forms, taxes are due, or at least 90% of what is owed is due, April 15, 2015.

Extensions - Filing

Do you need more time to file? By filing an extension, you can generally postpone filing your return until October 15, 2014. Filing an extension does not give you additional time to pay any tax you may owe. If you do not pay the tax due, or at least 90% of the tax due, by April 15, 2015, you will accrue penalty and interest charges. Complete IRS Form 4868, Application for Automatic Extension of Time To File U.S. Individual Income Tax Return, to file for an automatic six-month extension. If you file Form 4868, you will have until October 15, 2015, to file your tax return.
