Helpful Tips For Extension Filers
1. Military Members May Be Granted More Time
Military members, including those deployed to active combat zones, are typically given additional time to file returns. After all, it can be a little tricky to access records, fill out forms, and send the data to the appropriate institution while protecting the nation. These brave individuals usually have approximately 180-days after leaving the battlefield to send in the records and pay any taxes that are due.
2. Meet The Deadline To Avoid Additional Expenses
People that fail to file on time will likely incur hefty late penalties. With employees already working what seems like more hours than ever before, only to make end’s meet, paying an extra fine is nearly impossible. So, handle the business now, rather than later, and keep more of the hard earned money in your pocket where it belongs.
3. Consider Using IRS Free File Or e-file
Both of these filing options are available on www.irs.gov. Some people have reservations about transmitting data via the web. However, since its debut in 1990, electronic filing has safely and securely processed over 1-billion returns. The method is considered to be the most accurate, safest, and straightforward way to file.
