October 15 is just around the corner and time for extension filers to report tax returns

The standard six-month tax extension allows you to file your tax return after the usual deadline of April 15. However, it doesn’t buy you more time to pay any taxes you may owe. That means that if you don’t pay your tax balance by the filing deadline (April 17 in 2018), you’ll get hit with penalty and interest. Almost 14 million taxpayers filed for an extension of time to report their income tax returns. So they got their due date pushed from April 17th to October 15. still haven’t filed your return? then you are running out of time, because the tax filing extension deadline is October 15, 2018. Once Oct. 16 rolls around, taxpayers who still haven’t filed and owe the IRS will face a 5 percent monthly failure-to-file penalty. This would increase and go upto maximum of 25 percent depends on your case.

WASHINGTON — The Internal Revenue Service announced today that it is providing taxpayers an additional day to file and pay their taxes following system issues that surfaced early on the April 17 tax deadline. Individuals and businesses with a filing or payment due date of April 17 will now have until midnight on Wednesday, April 18. Taxpayers do not need to do anything to receive this extra time.
