file form 4868 by April 15. Can be filed electronically. This gives you an automatic six month extension and the IRS will charge interest on any amount due from April 15 to date filed. However, if NO tax is DUE, an extension is NOT necessary since there is no penalty for late filing if you have a refund.Leave a Comment 147 weeks ago
