About this Deal
The May 17 tax deadline is just around the corner. If you haven't filed yet and are feeling pressed for time, don’t panic. You can still get an extension to file until Oct. 15.
How to File an Extension
To file an extension, submit IRS Form 4868 electronically by the filing deadline on May 17. You can also do it for free using any of the Free File software offered by the major tax preparation companies. These often help you estimate your tax due so you can make a payment.
Another option is to print out the form and send it to the IRS address for your state by the deadline.
Even if you file an extension, you still need to pay what you owe by May 17. If you underestimate that amount, you could end up paying interest on what you don’t pay.
