So You Filed for a Tax Return Extension... Now What?

April always appears sooner than expected, and if you’re just not ready to file that tax return, getting an extension is easy.

Some states require that you file an extension application separate from the federal tax extension. If so, you’ll have to contact the tax authorities in your state to check the status of your application. Simply call the taxpayer service number and ask the service agent if your papers arrived on time.

Double check when taxes are due after tax extension. The standard tax extension deadline is six months and it allows you to file your tax return after the usual deadline. It does not excuse you from paying any taxes you may owe. If you are granted the extension, make sure you have everything submitted by October 15.
