eFile an IRS Tax Extension

Extend your tax filing deadline by 3 months. Quick & easy process that takes 5 minutes to complete.

How It Works: Step 1 The IRS requires that you provide some personal information in order to request a tax extension online. This includes your name, address, Social Security Number (or ITIN) ? and the same information for your spouse if you are married filing jointly. Tax forms (including W-2s, 1099s, and prior year returns) are not required to get a tax extension. Additionally, you can be confident that all of your data is kept secure and shared only with the IRS. Step 2 In order to get a tax extension, you must estimate whether you expect to owe taxes or get a tax refund. Don’t worry, this isn’t as complicated as it may sound. You can use FileLater’s helpful tax calculator to estimate your situation. Note that many taxpayers simply assume a similar tax situation to the previous year. If you expect to owe any tax, you will want to make a payment to avoid potential interest and late payment penalties assessed by the IRS. FileLater can also help you make a payment directly to the IRS via Electronic Funds Withdrawal (EFT) directly from your bank account. Step 3 Once you submit your tax extension using FileLater, the system will immediately electronically file (e-file) Tax Form 4868 to the IRS for approval. Note that FileLater is an authorized IRS e-file provider, which means that your transaction and your information are completely secure. That’s All It Takes Within a few hours of submitting your tax extension request, FileLater will send you a confirmation email notifying that your tax extension (Form 4868) has been approved by the IRS. If, for any reason, your tax extension request is denied, FileLater will tell you why ? and you can resubmit for free after making the necessary changes. Keep in mind, nearly all rejections are caused by mistakes (misspellings or Social Security Numbers that don’t match IRS records). As long as you submit your information accurately and on-time, your tax extension will likely be approved ? which is why the IRS calls it an “automatic extension.” Submit an extension at
