The deadlines to FILE and PAY federal income taxes are extended to July 15, 2020.

The Federal Governments’ response to the ongoing COVID-19 crisis by automatically extending certain filing deadlines and payments is good news to many, though the deadline to report personal income tax has been extended from April 15th to July 15th. Taxpayers including individuals, trusts and estates, corporations and other non-corporate tax filers as well as those who pay self-employment tax, if wants more time for any reason to file federal income tax returns can use www.ExtensionTax.com to e-file extension forms to request for an automatic extension, this will give them an automatic 6 months extension from the newly extended July 15 deadline.  

  • Individual taxpayers can request a filing extension by filing Form 4868 and;
  • Businesses who need additional time can request a filing extension by filing Form 7004.

By obtaining this extension, you can avoid any late-filing penalties as long as you do file by the extended due date. It’s important to keep in mind that filing an extension does not generally mean you are off the hook for paying taxes.

March 16 Form 7004 Deadline is just couple of days to go

Paying taxes is not optional – it’s the law. Taxpayers do have options when it comes to how they pay their taxes. The IRS offers several easy ways to pay taxes. Taxpayers can pay online, by phone or with their mobile device using the IRS2Go app, just to name a few. Some taxpayers must make quarterly estimated tax payments throughout the year. This includes sole proprietors, partners, and S corporation shareholders who expect to owe $1,000 or more when they file. Individuals who participate in the gig economy might also have to make estimated payments.

Taxpayers should remember a few important things.

  • An extension of time to file a return is not an extension of time to pay.
  • Taxpayers should pay any taxes they owe by the March 16 deadline to avoid possible penalties and interest.
  • The extension request must be filed electronically or postmarked no later than March 16, 2020.

Not yet ready with all the required paper work to report the taxes, and looking to seek additional time with the IRS? then you must file the extension application by the due date of your business tax return.  Corporate tax returns (Forms 1120, 1120-A, and 1120-S) or partnership tax return (Form 1065) filers have to report Form 7004 for an automatic 6-month extension of time to file the return by September 15. Do remember to make the deposit on the Form 7004 return, of what you estimate you owe in tax. Form 7004 extension request is due by March 16, 2020.

The IRS strongly encourages people to file their tax returns electronically and choose direct deposit for faster refunds. Filing electronically reduces tax return errors as the tax software does the calculations, flags common errors and prompts taxpayers for missing information. The IRS says, Form 7004 does not extend the time for payment of tax.” You must pay taxes due (estimated) by your tax return due date, even if you file an extension application. You will need to estimate as best you can because under-estimating can subject your business to fines and penalties.

Not Ready to File Business Income Tax Return? Request a Tax Extension with Form 7004

The March 15th deadline to file your business income tax return is almost here. Have you filed your return yet? There is still some time left. Maybe you’re still waiting on documents, or maybe you’ve just been too preoccupied with work and life to prepare your return. Whatever the reason may be, the IRS will grant you tax extension to file your return in case you are not ready.

If you need more time to file your taxes, you should definitely request an extension sooner than later. It’s always better to extend than to file an incorrect return and have to amend it later. With that in mind, it’s important to note, filing an extension grants you additional time to file your return, but not to pay the tax due.

If snail mail isn’t your thing, you can e-file your extension using www.ExtensionTax.com and make an estimated payment online using IRS Direct Debit Payment Option. ExtensionTax offers a secured service that lets you pay directly from a checking or savings account, and will send you an instant confirmation that your extension request was accepted and your payment was submitted. Just make sure you choose the correct form and tax period to let the IRS know where to apply your payment.

It is challenging to calculate the estimated amount-due to be paid if you’re not prepared to file, but if your tax situation has not changed much since last year, you can send the same estimated amount with your extension tax form 7004 and extend your filing date.

If you didn’t file for an extension by March 15th deadline, your extension request won’t be accepted by the IRS. So just do whatever it takes to e-file your 7004 return right away, the sooner the better. Remember, a return that is filed even one day late is considered late and the penalty will be levied by the IRS. Don’t waste several thousand dollars that you would likely owe in penalties if late, e-file Form 7004 for just $14.99 and take some extra time to review your return to make sure everything is complete before sending it in.
