Submit your free extension form
Individual taxpayers, regardless of income, can use Free File to request an automatic tax filing extension.
Submission of this form gives you until October 15 to file a return.
To obtain the extension, you must assess your tax liability on this form and you must also pay any amount owed.
When is “tax day”?
April 15, 2020 is the big “tax day”. That’s when personal federal tax returns and corporate tax returns are due (before midnight). It also exists when you’re first estimated tax payment is due, and most state tax returns (see the April 15 deadline below for details).
What is the deadline to pay your taxes?
If you are self-employed, your business is likely to pay taxes in four amounts during the year, rather than one day. These are called estimated tax payments. The due date for these payments is April 15, June 17, September 16, and January 15 (2020). What is the penalty for late payment? After your tax due date, you will need to pay an additional 0.5 percent of unpaid taxes each month until you pay your original tax bill (up to a maximum of 25 percent of your total tax bill).
When do the 2020 tax extensions expire?
You have the right until tax day to file an extension. For people, that means you can file a tax extension on April 15. It’s the same for companies: S choir and extension associations can still get it on March 16, and the last day for C-corps to apply for an extension is April 15.
