What happens if I don't pay my estimated balance due to the IRS now?


Personal Tax Extension Filing Service


You do not need to make any payment to the IRS to get a filing extension. However, tax extensions do not extend the time that you have to pay your taxes. They only extend the time you have to file your tax return. Any 2017 tax balance is still due to the IRS by 4/18/18. Failing to pay the balance in full by 4/18/18 will result in added interest, and possible penalties. So the IRS advises that if you cannot pay your full actual or estimated balance by 4/18/18, you should pay as much as you can to limit the amount of added interest you will owe later.
