Filing a Tax Extension

To file an extension, you must first select a main form (1040, 1040A or 1040EZ), and complete the personal information section (Name, Address, and SSN). Next, select the “File an Extension” icon from the menu bar. Form 4868 will open. Complete the form. The bottom half of this extension is similar to Step 2, Page 12, Sections 3–5. When you are filing an extension, you MUST enter amounts on both lines 6 and 7 of the Form 4868 if you owe a balance and want to make a payment. If you leave line 7 blank and you are paying electronically, no amount will be deducted from your bank account. You may elect to pay using direct debit or other e-payment options such as IRS Direct Pay. You may also file a Form 1040V, Payment Voucher, and mail a check to the IRS for the amount on line 7 payable to the US Treasury.

Remember, you must pay your taxes on time even if you are extending your tax filing deadline.
