Your selection must be appropriate for the business entity type you indicated to the IRS in your Federal Tax ID (EIN) filing, and/or the form you used for your most recent business tax return.

Tax Year End Date Enter the end date of your business's tax year. If you use the standard calendar year, enter December 31, 2016.
Short Tax Year If you entered a tax period of less than one year, you must provide a reason.
Estimated Tax This is called your "total tax liability". It is the total amount of taxes you will owe the IRS for 2016, whether you have paid any of it yet or not. For example, if you estimate that you will owe the IRS $10,000, and you had $5000 withheld from your paychecks throughout the year for federal taxes, your total tax liability is that first number, $10,000.

For reference, this would be the number you enter on line 63 of Form 1040.

One way you can estimate your total tax liability is as follows:
• Add together your income from employers, savings and investments, and other sources. You can find federal taxable income from an employer in box 1 of the W-2 form they send you. Various other income such as for independent contractors and unearned income like interest and dividends can be found on the 1099 forms you may receive.
• You can then reduce that number with any deductions, exemptions, or other gross income adjustments that you expect to qualify for.
• You now have an estimate of your total taxable income.
• Use the 2016 Tax Table to estimate your tax liability.
• If you expect to qualify for any credits, refer to your chosen tax return form to see where to include them. Some credits are subtracted at this step as part of the total tax liability calculation, whereas other credits are included with the withholdings and payments total in the next field. If you don't know where to apply your expected credit, or don't know if you'll qualify for any credits yet, you can err on the safe side by not including credits at all with this estimation. You can include credits later with your final tax return filing.

It is important that you attempt to estimate as well as you can. If the IRS later determines that your estimate was not reasonable, they will nullify your extension.
Estimating Your Tax These fields are to estimate your "total tax liability", which is the total amount of taxes you will owe the IRS for 2016, whether you have paid any of it yet or not. For example, if you estimate that you will owe the IRS $10,000, and you had $5000 withheld from your paychecks throughout the year for federal taxes, your total tax liability is that first number, $10,000. For reference, this would be the number you enter on line 63 of Form 1040.

Filing Status - What is the filing status that you expect to declare on your federal tax return? The options are Single, Married Filing Jointly, Married Filing Separately, and Head of Household.
Dependents - How many dependents do you expect to declare on your federal tax return?
2016 Income - Add together your income from employers, savings and investments, and other sources. You can find federal taxable income from employers in box 1 of the W-2 forms they send you. Various other income such as for independent contractors, and unearned income like interest and dividends, can be found on the 1099 forms you may receive.
Estimate for total amount of 2016 federal taxes - Our estimation calculation uses various simplifying assumptions such as taking one exemption for yourself, one for your spouse if filing jointly, and one for each dependent, using the standard deduction instead of itemizing deductions, not claiming any credits, etc. This is only an estimate and the final amount when you file your return may be higher or lower.

It is important that you attempt to estimate as well as you can. If the IRS later determines that your estimate was not reasonable, they will nullify your extension.
Amount Already Paid This is the total amount of 2016 federal tax payments you have already made. If you have federal taxes withheld from your paycheck by your employer, this number will be in box 2 of the W-2 form you receive from them. Add these withholdings to any other payments you have already made toward your 2016 federal taxes. The total is your 2016 federal taxes already paid.

For reference, this would correspond Form 1040 line 74 minus Form 1040 line 70. You do not include the amount of any payment that you will be making now, with this extension.

If you expect to qualify for any credits, refer to your chosen tax return form to see where to include them. Some credits are included in the total tax liability calculation, whereas other credits are included with this Amount Already Paid field. If you don't know where to apply your expected credit, or don't know if you'll qualify for any credits yet, you can err on the safe side by not including credits at all with this estimation. You can include credits later with your final tax return filing.

It is important to that you attempt to estimate as well as you can. If the IRS later determines that your estimate was not reasonable, they will nullify your extension.
Estimated Balance Due This is the difference between your estimated tax and your payments. It is updated here automatically.
Amount Paying Now You do not have to pay a balance to receive a filing extension.

But tax extensions do not extend the time you have to pay your taxes. They only extend the time you have to file your tax return. Any tax balance due to the IRS is still due by the tax deadline.

Failing to pay the full balance due by the deadline will result in interest, and possibly penalties as well. So if you cannot pay the full balance due by then, the IRS advises that you should pay as much as you can to limit the amount of interest you will owe.

If you wish to pay part or all of your balance now to the IRS, your card will not be charged for that amount at checkout. Instead, we will inform you how to pay the IRS directly after we are finished processing your extension.
