If Your Not Ready For Tax Day?

Not Ready for Tax Day? Here's How to File for an Extension Tax day is April 15, but many people need more time. Extensions, which will give you an extra six months, are common and easy to do. On IRS.gov, they can be done with the program FreeFile and not cost you a dime. Other tax services like FileLater.com can also be used.


If you don't want to file yourself, a tax accountant can do it for you. Filling out the 4868 extension form is also easy. As well as your social security number. You must also include payments previously made for 2018. A tax liability estimate from the previous year is required as well. Additional payments alongside form 4868 can be done with a check. Paying over the phone or online works too.
