E-File IRS Form 8868

You can extend your IRS income tax deadline using ExpressExtension to electronically file Form 8868. Exempt organizations Extensions have 2 parts. Our site allows you to file either one. You can even E-File Part II through us, even if you didn't file part I with us.

  • Part I(Automatic 3-Month Extension of Time):
  • You will get 3 months extension automatically when you e-file IRS Form 8868 with ExpressExtension.com. This will extend the filing deadline for 3 months (or 6 months for Form:990-T).
  • Part II(Additional (Not Automatic) 3-Month Extension of Time):
  • You will get additional three months extension of time which is not an automatic extension. Only File Part II if you have already been granted an Automatic 3-Month Extension on a Previously Filed Form 8868.
