Filing a Exempt organizations Tax Extension 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
This will automatically extend the filing deadline for 3 months (or 6 months for Form:990-T).

Part II: Additional (Not-Automatic) 3-Month Extension of Time
Only file Part II if you have already been granted an Automatic 3-Month Extension on a Previously filed Form 8868.

What you'll need to do to File Form 8868?

Before filing your extension gather information such as your business/organization name, address, EIN (Employer Identification Number) / FEIN, estimated amount of tax owed to the IRS if any and the type of the tax form that you normally file your income tax returns on (for example, 990, 990-EZ, 990-T, etc.). It is important that this information matches what the IRS has on record for you. If you are unsure of any of this information we recommend contacting the IRS Exempt organizations hotline at 1-877-829-5500.

Steps to E-File Form 8868

After creating your ExpressExtension account you will click 'Create New Extension' on your account Dashboard. The ExpressExtension system will walk you through each step of the extension filing process through transmitting the return to the IRS. After you have transmitted your tax extension form to the IRS you'll just need to watch for update and confirmation e-mails from us while we take care of the rest. As you go through the process you can contact our locally based support team by phone, live chat or e-mail with questions.

First and foremost we're here and happy to help you from our support center in Rock Hill, South Carolina as you're going through the filing steps. Before you transmit your return we will provide error checks to make sure that you're not missing basic information. After your form has been transmitted to the IRS we will e-mail you as soon as your extension form has been accepted. This e-mail normally comes back to you within minutes of transmitting your extension form to the IRS (during peak filing season the wait times could be a bit longer due to the IRS volume). If for any reason your form is rejected by the IRS we will send you an e-mail with the reason for rejection. With ExpressExtension you can always re-transmit rejected returns at no additional charge. Don't forget that we're here to help through each step of the process - call, chat or e-mail.
