Last Call: Ready for Taxes? Request an Extension if you need it


Time flies, and the deadline to file your taxes is right around the corner. However, if you feel that you are not fully prepared to meet this tax obligation, do not panic. There is a solution: request an extension.


In this blog, we'll explore why it's crucial to stay on top of tax deadlines, when and why you should consider an extension, and how BookkeeperPro can help you in this process.

 

1. Awareness of Fiscal Deadlines:


It is essential to be aware of the deadlines to file your taxes. The typical filing date is April 15, but if you need more time this year, the IRS offers the opportunity to request an extension. Failure to file your taxes on time can result in fines and penalties, which could significantly affect your financial situation.


2. Reasons to Request an Extension:


  • Lack of Documentation : Sometimes, gathering all the necessary documentation to complete your tax return can take longer than expected. An extension gives you the extra time you need to gather and organize all your financial documents.


  • Complexity of Financial Situation: If your financial situation is complicated, such as having multiple sources of income, investments, or businesses, you may need more time to properly review and understand your situation before filing your taxes.


  • Accuracy: Accuracy is key when filing your taxes. If you feel you need more time to review and verify the accuracy of your return, it is better to request an extension than to submit incorrect information.


3. Steps to Request an Extension:


  1. Complete the Extension Form: To request an extension, you will need to complete Form 4868 (for individuals) or Form 7004 (for businesses). These forms allow you to request a six-month extension to file your taxes.

  2. Provide Justification: When requesting an extension, it is important to provide a valid reason for needing more time, such as lack of documentation or the complexity of your financial situation.

  3. File by the Deadline: Be sure to file your extension request before the tax filing deadline to avoid fines and penalties.
