“Taxes are what we pay for civilized society.” — Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr., U.S. Supreme Court Justice. Welcome to our blog taxpayers. Today in our blog, we would discuss about form 4868, the Application for Automatic Extension of Time To File U.S. Individual Income Tax Return. With time running short, we would like to remind our taxpayers about the due date that falls on April 15th to file an extension via form 4868 and gain 6 months time to file Individual Income Tax Return.

We know life is tedious in its own way, and there are days when you are not be able to get your papers ready as scheduled. Obviously, you need extra time to file your tax return; form 4868 is here to save you. Do note, this extension does not serve you with extra time to pay your taxes, it allows you to gather your papers , leaving the penalties behind.

When To File Form 4868:

As mentioned above, if you are not able to file your taxes on or by the due date, i.e. April 15th, you are eligible to get an automatic 6-months extension of time through form 4868. it is always good to file the extension much before the due date. If the extension is rejected for some reason, you have sufficient time correct it and refile the same.

Gain 6 months extension through form 4868 for the following forms:

  • Tax Form 1040
  • Tax Form 1040A
  • Tax Form 1040EZ
  • Tax Form 1040NR
  • Tax Form 1040NR-EZ
  • Tax Form 1040-PR/ Tax Form 1040-SS

Taxpayers Who Are Out Of the Country:

However, if the taxpayer is out of the country on the regular due date of the return, and you are a U.S. citizen or resident, you qualify for Special Tax Treatment. You get automatic 2 months extension to file your tax return without requesting for the extension. The extended due date would fall on June 16th .

Special Tax Treatment:

If you are outside the country and a U.S citizen or resident, you may qualify for special tax treatment if you are meeting the foreign residence or physical presence test. However, if you do not expect to meet either of those tests by the due date of your tax return, you can request an extension through form 2350, Application for Extension of Time To File U.S. Income Tax Return.

You Are Out Of the Country If:

  • You reside outside the States and Puerto Rico and your main work place is outside the United States and Puerto Rico, or
  • You are in military or naval service outside the United States and Puerto Rico.

If you qualify as being out of the country, you will still be eligible for the extension even if you are physically present in the United States or Puerto Rico on the regular due date of the return.
