Tuesday Tax Tip

Experienced in:

Extension of Time to File:  A taxpayer may file Form 4868 for an automatic six-month extension through October 15.  However, this extension of time to file, which must be filed or postmarked by the April 15 deadline, does not give you more time to pay any taxes due.  If you have not paid at least 90 percent of the total tax due by April 15, you may be subject to an estimated tax penalty.  (TTT 04/07/15 & 04/14/15)
