Need more time to prepare your federal tax return?

The IRS deadline to file and pay federal income taxes has been moved to July 15. If you need additional time to file, request an extension to Oct. 15, 2020.
IRS is also offering coronavirus relief to taxpayers.
Need more time to prepare your federal tax return? Here is some information on how to apply for an extension of time to file. Please be aware that:
  • An extension of time to file your return does not grant you any extension of time to pay your taxes.
  • You should estimate and pay any owed taxes by your regular deadline to help avoid possible penalties.
  • You must file your extension request no later than the regular due date of your return.

Get an extension when you make a payment
You can also get an extension by paying all or part of your estimated income tax due and indicate that the payment is for an extension using Direct Pay, the Electronic Federal Tax Payment System (EFTPS), or a credit or debit card. This way you won’t have to file a separate extension form and you will receive a confirmation number for your records.
