Can’t file by April 15? Extend the Time to File Your Tax Return but Not the Time to Pay

Many taxpayers do not have all of the information necessary to prepare a complete and accurate tax return by April 15 and therefore need to request an extension from the IRS to file their taxes. Individuals can request an automatic six-month extension of time to file using Form 4868, which gives individual taxpayers until October 15, 2019, to file their 2018 tax return without incurring a late filing penalty.

NOTICE – Filing an extension extends the time allotted to file your tax return, however filing an extension does NOT extend the time to pay taxes owed. Taxes are due to be paid with the filing of the extension form. Neglecting to submit required tax payments will result in penalties for failing to pay timely and the accrual of interest. This is the case for both federal as well as state income tax liabilities.

Georgia is among the states where submission of a federal income tax extension serves as an extension of the Georgia state income tax return as well. However, each state is different so if you’re filing a multi-state return, note that extension filing requirements must be considered on a state-by-state basis.

For more information on the Application for Automatic Extension of Time To File U.S. Individual Income Tax Return (Form 4868), please go to – https://www.irs.gov/pub/irs-pdf/f4868.pdf.
