Anyone can file an official tax extension online with 1040.com: Simply log in or sign up and select the “Need an Extension?” button on the first page. 1040.com provides a simple way to electronically file the official IRS Form 4868 (Application for Automatic Extension of Time to File U.S. Individual Income Tax Return). For more information, head over to our Tax Guide.
Remember: Even if you file a tax extension, any taxes owed are still due on April 15 (or the next business day, if the 15th falls on a holiday or weekend). With an extension, your return will be due October 15 (or the next business day, if the 15th falls on a holiday or weekend). For those in military or living outside the U.S, special rules may apply.
