HOW TO EXTEND YOU INDIVIDUAL TAX RETURN FOR THE TAX YEAR ENDING DEC. 31ST, 2018

  

For an individual tax return your extension of time to file ends SIX months later OCT. 15TH, 2019.

Partnerships and S-Corps are due March 15th and can be extended to September 15th. 

They use a different extension form than those listed below. Call our office for more information.

OPTION 1

  

You can go to https://www.irs.gov/pub/irs-pdf/f4868.pdf, print, complete, and mail the form to the IRS. 

If you owe money it is probably a good idea to mail it certified. 

ADDRESS TO FILE THE EXTENSION IS LOCATED WITH THE IRS EXTENSION FORM ON PAGE 4 of the IRS form instructions.

If you need a Missouri extension go to:

If you need an Illinois extension go to:

For all other states please visit their website.

OPTION 2

  

You can call us and ask Terri to put you on our "Extension List."  

314-965-8633

Your will need to tell her if you expect to owe and how much. You will need to fax, mail or e-mail your W2s, 1099s, and estimated tax payments. 

We will try to e-file the extension, but we cannot guarantee that all systems will work perfectly in the cyberworld. To guarantee that IRS receives your extension, you can make an appointment with us and if necessary, you can use certified mail. Or, you can use the government web site procedure listed above. 

  

An extension of time to file is NOT an extension of time to pay. IRS will add about 1% interest per month. Missouri will charge you a flat 5% if you pay one day late after the due date, plus they will charge interest. 

Some other states do not honor the federal extension. They need a separate extension, or you will pay late filing penalties and interest.
