File a Free Tax Extension Online
If you are not able to finish your 2017 tax return by the April 15th deadline, you can simply file a tax extension online with LateTax! It will give you an extra six months to file your return.
You can e-file an extension right here on LateTax. Just create an account here and follow the instructions. It’s completely free and only takes a few minutes.
Then you can log back in to your account anytime over the next six months to prepare your return at your own pace.
Completing an extension request only takes a few minutes.
A tax extension automatically gives you until October 17, 2018, to file your return with the IRS without incurring any failure-to-file penalties.
Though an extension gives you an extra six months to file, it does not give you an extra six months to pay. When you file your extension prior to the April 15th deadline, you will have to estimate your tax liability and pay any tax due.
Thus a tax extension does not let you avoid paying your taxes, but it will grant you extra time to prepare your return. Create your account now to e-file a tax extension for free.
