Why Filing An Extension Is Important?

File extension online

Imagine opening a letter from the IRS assessing you a huge penalty because they claim you did not file your extension on time!  There are several individuals who face this exact problem.  The irritating part is that an extension request is an arguably meaningless filing since it is automatically granted if requested. But, the IRS takes it very serious.

So with April 17th fast approaching (taxes are not due on the 15th due to the federal observation of the signing of the Compensated Emancipation Act by Abraham Lincoln in 1862), how can you protect yourself?  If you are filing your own extension for your personal tax returns with the IRS use Form 4868.  Be sure to get some kind of proof of delivery and make a copy of theextension.  Even with delivery confirmation it is difficult to prove what you sent.  The best way is to e-file the extension through Extensiontax.comthat e-files and obtains an electronic confirmation.

BEWARE!!  Just because you file an extension does not grant you additional time to pay!  The tax you calculate on the return you are going to prepare and file by October is still due by April 17.  So if you think you might not have enough tax withheld, you need to make some good estimates and send in some payments.  You can send the payment Information with Form 4868, when E-filed and the money gets automatically debited from your bank account.

If you do not pay your tax or file your return on time, interest and penalties are calculated based on any amount of tax you come up short. Interest varies with market changes (currently 4 percent a year for the IRS). IRS late payment penalties are ½ percent of the balance each month (up to 25 percent).  If you fail to timely file, the IRS penalties are 5 percent of the balance each month (up to 25 percent).  You may also incur underpayment of estimated tax penalties depending on your circumstances.

Millions of people e-file their tax extension forms every year. The IRS has a digital initiative–a push to get up to 80 percent of their forms online–and tax extensions are included in that. E-filing a federal personal, business and nonprofit tax extension with Form 48687004and 8868 is quick and easy. A tax extension extends the time to file, not to pay taxes (if they are owed).

Missing Form W-2? File an Extension online @ www.ExtensionTax.com.

Before you file your 2011 tax return, you should make sure you have all the needed documents including all your Forms W-2. You should receive a Form W-2, Wage and Tax Statement, from each of your employers. Employers have until January 31, 2012 to send you a 2011 Form W-2 earnings statement.If you haven’t received your W-2, follow these steps:

1.     Contact your employer If you have not received your W-2, contact your employer to inquire if and when the W-2 was mailed. If it was mailed, it may have been returned to the employer because of an incorrect or incomplete address. After contacting the employer, allow a reasonable amount of time for them to resend or to issue the W-2.

2. Contact the IRS If you do not receive your W-2 by February 14th, contact the IRS for assistance at 800-829-1040. When you call, you must provide your name, address, city and state, including zip code, Social Security number, phone number and have the following information:

• Employer’s name, address, city and state, including zip code and phone number

• Dates of employment

• An estimate of the wages you earned, the federal income tax withheld, and when you worked for that employer during 2011. The estimate should be based on year-to-date information from your final pay stub or leave-and-earnings statement, if possible.

3.     File your return You still must file your tax return or request an extension to file April 18, 2011, even if you do not receive your Form W-2. If you have not received your Form W-2 by the due date, and have completed steps 1 and 2, you may use Form 4852, Substitute for Form W-2, Wage and Tax Statement. Attach Form 4852 to the return, estimating income and withholding taxes as accurately as possible.  There may be a delay in any refund due while the information is verified.

4.     File a Form 1040X On occasion, you may receive your missing W-2 after you filed your return using Form 4852, and the information may be different from what you reported on your return. If this happens, you must amend your return by filing a Form 1040X, Amended U.S. Individual Income Tax Return.

If you do not get your W-2 in time to file your Taxes, Make sure to file an Extension.
