Tax Filing Extension Requests

Tax Filing Extension Requests

Even though the deadline for filing taxes is more or less the same every year, it always seems to sneak up on us out of nowhere. Suddenly it’s April 1st and you haven’t even looked at any of your tax preparation paperwork. You also don’t remember where you stored those W-2s and 1099s for safekeeping. There’s just no way you’ll be ready by April 15th (or the first business day after if April 15th fell on a weekend or a holiday). 

Don’t panic! Moore & Paquette Tax Group is here to help with all of your tax filing extension requests.

Individual Tax Filing Extension Deadlines 

April 15th is about to come and go. What should you do? Call us to request an extension on the filing deadline. Your new tax filing deadline will be October 15th unless the 15th falls on a weekend or a holiday. If it does, the filing deadline is the first business day after October 15th

Corporate Tax Filing Extension Deadlines

If you think you’re going to miss the deadline for your business taxes, you can file an extension for that as well. C corporations have the same deadlines as individuals, so the extended deadline is also October 15th, unless the corporation’s tax year differs from the calendar year. For partnerships and S corporations, the extended deadline is September 15th.

When You Have to Pay Your Taxes 

If you’ve called us and filed your extension, you may think you’re off the hook for paying your taxes until the new deadline. Unfortunately, that’s not the case. The IRS expects you to pay your taxes by the April 15th deadline through tax withholding for your paycheck or quarterly estimated tax payments. If you wait to pay your taxes until the extended deadline, you could be subject to penalties and interest.

But again, no need to panic. Call us at Moore & Paquette Tax Group and if you haven’t made those estimated payments yet, we’ll help you figure out what they are so you can file an extension and hopefully reduce any possible penalties.

Get in touch with us today to get your tax extension request started and breathe a sigh of relief.
