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.

Once you successfully request a tax extension, remember that you must file your tax return by the new extended deadline. If you miss the October 15 due date, you will be subject to IRS late fees, penalties, and interest. It is also important to note that you will not be allowed to request any further extensions. Your request for an automatic extension of time will grant you an extra six months to file your taxes, but that’s your one and only chance to ask for a bit of a reprieve.
