What to do when you miss the tax deadline?

Filing taxes under normal circumstances can be stressful, but waking up the day after the tax deadline and knowing you still haven’t filed can be downright terrifying. If you woke up this morning with a sinking feeling in the pit of your stomach we have two words for you: don’t panic. Yes, that’s right. Don’t panic. There are still steps you can take for handling this year’s taxes.

If you’ve requested an extension:

An extension extends the time to file your return, NOT the time to send in your payment (if one is due). Even if you filed an extension, if you owe taxes and have not paid them, time is of the essence.

If you haven’t done anything:

If you haven’t yet filed anything, it is imperative that you take action. Don’t be an ostrich – burying your head in the sand will not make the problem go away.

  • If you owe money, the IRS will continue to accrue penalties and interest.
  • If you are due a refund, there IS a time limit on how long you have to get your money back.
