Filing An IRS Tax Extension With Filelater - 5 Minutes Gives You 6 More Months To File

Apr 9, 2008
Welcome to yet another tax season. Stressed yet?

With a matter of days remaining until the April 15 IRS income tax deadline, the stress level of Americans is on the rise. If you haven't noticed already, start preparing yourself for even more angry drivers on the freeways, impatient customers in the lines of local coffee shops and grocery stores, and friends who don't quite treat you like the friends they were only weeks ago. Yep, tax season brings out the best in everyone!

Looking for a way to cut down on the April tax time blues? There's a little known secret called an IRS tax extension (the technical term is an IRS Form 4868 - Application for Automatic Extension of Time To File U.S. Individual Income Tax Return), and a company called FileLater who can help. Of 130M United States federal income tax filers, about 10M filed for automated extensions last year, so you won't be alone. And the IRS doesn't ask (or care) why you file for an extension.

Almost every tax-paying American is automatically eligible to file an IRS tax extension. And the best part is that it can be easy to do. In about 5 minutes, you can go to FileLater's website at http://www.filelater.com, answer a handful of relatively simple questions, and have your tax extension e-filed to the IRS for you. In a couple of days, you'll get an email with IRS confirmation that your new tax deadline is October 15.

The alternative to using a website to file your extension is mailing ti yourself. The downside to that is you don't get an email confirmation telling you that your extension has been accepted.

To file a tax extension online you'll need to provide some basic personal information, and an estimate of your tax liability. Don't have a clue if you owe or if you'll be getting a refund? Don't worry, the better tax extension filing services like FileLater will provide you with a simple calculator to make determining your tax liability easy.

If you're in the minority of tax filers who will owe money to the IRS (rather than getting a refund) the IRS will still want their money by April 15 or you could be hit with a late payment penalty. Filing a tax extension will give you the extra 6 months to file your tax return, but it doesn't give you extra time to pay the IRS. That means you either have to mail a check postmarked by April 15 to the IRS or provide bank information online for an automatic withdrawal. If you expect to get a refund, then there's nothing to consider.

The deadline for filing your income tax extension is April 15. A simple 5 minutes with FileLater can give you an additional 6 months to file your taxes. Best of all, your stressed out CPA or tax professional will love you for it. Don't stress about your taxes, give yourself an extra 6 months.
