03 Apr What You Need to Know about Filing Your Extension
The tax deadline is fast approaching, but if you’re not yet ready to file, don’t let it cause you any undue stress. Filing a tax extension is a relatively simple process. However, there are a few things you need to know about the extension filing process. Keep reading to learn more about what you need to do to request an extension, and how we can help you.
How to File Your Extension
Filing your extension is as simple as submitting a single form to the IRS, which your Provo tax professional can do for you. Filing your extension gives you an additional 6 months to file your full tax return, setting your new deadline to October 15th. You don’t have to worry about paying a fee for filing late. So if you feel like you need a little bit more time to file, we can submit an extension for you quickly and easily.
Paying an Estimate
While filing an extension is very simple, it only helps you avoid a late filing fee. If you think you will owe on your taxes, you need to make an estimated payment on the amount you owe in order to avoid late payment fees. We can help you to calculate an estimated payment to send in with your extension submission.
So if you want to give yourself a little bit more time to gather the necessary documents to file your tax return, meet with a Provo tax professional at The Accounting Guys. If you provide us with the proper financial information, we can help calculate your estimated payment and file a request for extension on your behalf, so that you can avoid both the late filing fee and the late payment fees.
