Income tax forms and payment are due AGAIN. Don’t sweat it, file IRS Form 4868 today!
Remember this is an Automatic 6 month Extension Request for time to file IRS Form 1040 only.
It is not an extension of time to pay your federal and (where applicable) state income taxes. You are always best served estimating your tax liability and paying that liability in full to the US Treasury as well as with most all states on or before April 15th. If you cannot pay what you estimate you owe, STILL FILE IRS FORM 4868 to secure your automatic extension request.
