More Time to File Your Individual Tax Return with Form 4868

The same way businesses might need more time to file their 2013 tax return, individual tax payers have the right to request an extension, too. Form 4868 allows individuals to request more time to turn in their paperwork, but does not extend the time you have to pay owed taxes to the federal government.

Mark you calendar! The deadline to file your 2013 personal tax return is April 15, 2014. 

Just in case you’re running late, you can submit Form 4868 by April 15th, and the IRS will automatically grant you a six month extension to file your tax return, meaning it will now be due on October 15, 2014. Click here to fill out, save, and send Form 4868.
