Very easy to navigate and complete in a relatively short period of time. I was notified via email that the extension request was accepted by the IRS within seconds of submitting the form. Really, Seconds not Minutes.

Convenient and easy to use. Also love the email and text features, Thorough process, Sound explanations for each stage (help texts), payment options and Dashboard.

Easy navigation and the information from last year is saved into the system so that I don’t have to type it all in again. Live chat meant live chat, and fast.
Thank you for that.

This is a life-saver! For the first time in 44 years I need to request an extension on my business taxes and I had no idea how I was going to get the Form 7004 from Louisiana on March 13 to Utah by March 15. Thank you for this service.

This is absolutely the easiest way to manage tax filings for a small business. We have used Express Extension for 1099s and extensions, and it takes all the pressure out of the process.

Storing my info from the past so the process is quick and easy and I did not have to look up anything in my records to complete. The email reminder saved me from missing an important filing deadline! Thanks!

The IRS Form 4868 is used by U.S. Individuals to get a 6 months extension to file 1040 individual income tax returns. Form 4868 is an automatic extension Form, which means that you do not need to include a signature or explanation for requesting an extension of time.
Personal Tax Extension Form 4868 is for individual or joint taxpayers to apply for an additional 6 months to file IRS Form 1040, 1040A, 1040-EZ, 1040NR, 1040NR-EZ, 1040-PR or 1040-SS.
The IRS doesn't require a reason to extend, and it's automatic! But you are required to accurately estimate your 2022 tax liability and file IRS Form 4868 by the due date of your return.
Note: You still need to pay any tax due by the original IRS deadline; the Form 4868 extension does not extend the time to pay.
Your Personal tax extension Form 4868 gets reviewed for any errors and is transmitted securely through our IRS-authorized, e-filing network.
Depending on the filing capacity, the IRS could get back with you within the hour. Our email notifications will keep you updated on your filing status. If your 1040 extension form gets rejected, we immediately point out the issue and allow you to correct any mistakes and retransmit for free. No worries, our forms are simple for quick approvals!
Use 4868 Form to extend the individual tax forms 1040, 1040A, 1040-EZ, 1040NR, 1040NR-EZ, 1040-PR or 1040-SS filing deadline to
October 16, 2023.

The penalty for filing late is 5% of the unpaid taxes for each month or part of the month your return is late, and includes up to 25% of your unpaid tax. If the return is more than 60 days late, the minimum penalty is $135 or 100% of the unpaid tax, whichever is smaller.
Failure-to-file penalties typically cost more than failure-to-pay penalties, so if you need more filing time, you can e-file your IRS tax extension in minutes with ExpressExtension.
