Final Tax Deadline for 2014

If you haven’t already filed your taxes then you’ve got 15 days left to complete the job. Assuming you filed an extension before the original deadline (4/15/2014) you’re now approaching the end of the automatically granted six month period which gives you until October 15, 2014 to file your 2013 Individual Tax return.

All of the other deadlines have come and gone – W-2’s and 1099’s were due in January and March, Corporate and Partnership returns (if an extension was filed) were due in September. Now the final 2013 returns for individuals are also due.

Remember that if you owe any taxes on your personal return, those amounts were due on April 15, 2014. So if you end up owing, get the payment in as quickly as possible. If you can’t pay the full amount then pay what you can and request an installment arrangement – you can do this online or with the return. But make sure you’ve taken advantage of all deductions, exemptions and credits available.

And worst case, if you absolutely can’t get the return filed you may want to request special consideration for additional time. The requirements are pretty high (far more than “the dog ate my homework”) but it’s at least worth a shot.
