Avoid late filing and late payment penalties
You do not have to make any tax payment to the IRS to receive a personal tax extension, and it will prevent any late filing penalty as long as you file a personal tax return by October 15. To avoid late payment fees, you can pay estimated taxes to the IRS by April 18, but that is a separate process from the extension. We'll provide any applicable details upon completion of your personal tax extension.

The process for a business tax extension is similar, except that the deadline to file a business tax extension is March 15 for some businesses and April 18 for most other businesses. This would avoid the late filing penalty and extend the business's return filing deadline by five to six months. To avoid late payment fees, you can pay estimated business taxes to the IRS by your normal tax deadline.
