Federal Tax Extensions – Did You Know?

If you file for an extension on your federal income tax return, you have until Oct 15th, 2022 to file your taxes but you still have to pay any taxes due by April 18th, 2022. Bear in mind that this extension applies only to FILING your return; the payment due date will remain as April 18th. Failing to pay the full amount you owe by April 18th may result in late fees, interest or other penalties.

If you are a US citizen or green card holder living overseas, or active military on duty outside the United States on the regular due date of the return, you may be able to get an automatic two month extension to file your return and pay any taxes due.
