1) You can ask for an extension: Talk to your tax specialist, ask him or her to file an extension for you. You have until midnight to mail the extension (we advise that you certify the mail to have proof of when it was sent), or you can have your extension e-filed by your tax professional or for free on the IRS website. You can even make a payment on their website without any additional charges.
2) The deadline doesn't apply to everyone: If you have many exemptions (meaning, dependents) and write-offs (meaning, deductions), you will most likely be getting a refund. If you fall in this category, you have 3 years to file. However, don't miss that deadline or you'll never see that refund. Regardless, you must still eventually file, but your refund will be forfeited. Therefore, for those receiving a refund with your 2015 taxes, your deadline will be April 15, 2019.
3) Tax day is not always April 15th: This year (2016) tax day is on April 18th. When Monday comes and you thought you missed the deadline, SURPRISE! You didn't. However it won't always happen that way. Therefore, pay attention to that tax day. The only time tax day is moved is when it falls on a
weekend or on a holiday. This year (2016) April 15th lands on Emancipation Day. You have President Lincoln to thank, and lucky for you, tax professionals are working around the clock on the last week of tax season. However, let me remind you that you have access to the IRS website 24/7 to take care of any extensions in case you can't get an appointment with your tax professional.
So, my friend, I leave you with these comforting words.....No need to panic, there are many solutions for you. Here is the IRS website link to get you started with your filing (Under Hot Topics) and we hope this post will help you sleep better tonight.
